Open since May 2022, Haru is an excellent option if you’re craving sushi in Westwood—and not in the mood to give any more of your money to KazuNori this month. The tiny shop on Westwood Blvd. is takeout-only at the moment, but service is efficient and everything comes packaged looking like a work of art. The menu has everything from bento boxes and carpaccio to specialty rolls and a daily sashimi board, but our pick—particularly during lunch when it’s $30—is the chirashi bowl. Filled with 12-15 pieces of premium fish ranging from toro to raw scallop, it’s the perfect treat-me lunch without burning too big of a hole in your wallet.
