A speakeasy sushi spot in the back of Encino’s Scratch Bar, Sushi Bar is half-meal, half-show, with a stand-up comedian bartender narrating your meal and introducing each of the 17 courses. Our favorites were a Peruvian scallop with leche de tigre, uni and scallop wrapped in a shiso leaf like a taco, and a fantastic bone marrow sushi piece (roast bone marrow over rice). It’s $125, with an optional $55 cocktail and sake pairing we’d highly recommend. If you’re looking for a traditional omakase, this is definitely not your place, but for something adjacent to that, Sushi Bar is a great choice.
