Downtown isn’t where you might expect to find one of LA’s best sushi spots, but that was before you met Q. The whole place feels like it was airlifted in from Tokyo, and quite a lot of the fish actually is. Omakase is the only option, and it’s pretty pricey (well over $100), but there’s a more affordable lunch special that involves 11 pieces for $75. The most impressive part of the place is the attention to detail - wasabi is freshly grated in front of you, and individual pieces of nigiri are handed over one by one, with the exact amount of sauce, wasabi, and seasoning the chef wants (no dunking in soy allowed). Fish varieties are unusual too - we’ve had some spectacular ocean trout here that we’d eat over salmon any day.
