Sushi Ike has a dedicated following, and one reason is that it could easily work for many different sushi situations. They have a solid sushi lunch combo that hovers right around $18, an a la carte menu that’ll keep things close to $50, and an exceptional omakase that goes upwards of $100. That’s a lot of money, but it’s fantastic, and their grilled octopus might be the best in town. Just don’t expect much of an atmosphere inside, this Hollywood sushi bar is as bare bones as it gets.
