You started with Sugarfish, graduated to the grown-up version at Sasabune, and have gone super-upscale with Q. Your next move is Shunji. Omakase here is around the $150 mark (although pop in for lunch and you might not have to sacrifice an entire cell phone bill), fish varieties are different, and they do some crazy things with vegetables. Once you’ve conquered the left-of-center Shunji, all that’s left is the paycheck-killing Urusawa.

Santa Monica’s KazuNori is a handroll-only sushi option from the people behind Sugarfish. Expect the same quality without the crazy wait.
