The latest restaurant that urges you to seize the fish (a school of thought known as carp-e diem) is Sōgo, a new hand roll bar in Los Feliz. They’re in the same vein as spots like KazuNori or The HRB Experience, but what separates Sōgo from their competitors is a combo of higher-quality fish and unique, creative rolls. Which should come as no surprise, given that they’re owned and operated by the team behind Sushi Note, a wine bar/sushi restaurant in Sherman Oaks that is one of the best raw fish-experiences in Los Angeles. We recommend ordering the six-roll set, which is the perfect size for lunch, and includes the best and most interesting cuts of fish, like fatty bluefin toro, brandy-soaked albacore, and snapper served with a perfectly light yuzu ponzu sauce.
