Now’s a good time to remember that just because a sushi restaurant is expensive, doesn’t mean a sushi restaurant is great. Say hello to Koi - the ridiculously overpriced (and definitely not great) Japanese/sushi joint on La Cienega that ideally should only ever interest you if you’re a Persian teenager on holiday or a bored housewife trying to flag down Perez Hilton. This is sushi for people who want to be on TV and for people who think being spotted at a restaurant is how you accomplish that. The nice space will keep you entertained if you get roped into dinner here, but if come looking for quality sushi, you won’t find it. The best thing is probably the steak.
