According to the late Anthony Bourdain, never eat sushi on a Monday. He claimed that unless he knew the chef and the restaurant well, you’re likely eating 4 to 5 day old raw fish. So, since today is Tuesday, I’m celebrating and having sushi at one of my favorite spots in L.A.
Here lies the problem – I have a lot of favorite sushi spots – so many that if it wasn’t for the Bourdain’s advice and the fact I would have mercury flowing through my veins – I’d be able to eat it every day at a new spot worth raving on Yelp about.
In honor of the cities plethora of excellent sushi spots, I will share with you my top 6 favorites – just don’t ever go on a Monday:
1. Little Itzikaya – Sherman Oaks
2. Shu – Beverly Glen
3. Mtn – Venice
4. Shima – Venice
5. Nobu – Malibu
6. Asanebo – Studio City
