If you’re looking for a lighter dinner spot before a night out on the town, this sushi/whiskey bar can compete with most places in Los Angeles. If you’re coming in with a big group, you can definitely grab a table, but our move is to head directly to the lively bar, where you can order directly from the sushi chefs. Get the scallop aguachile and don’t shy away from the extensive whiskey list.
