This strip mall sushi spot in Gardena has just 10 seats and is only open three days a week (Friday to Sunday), but here’s the good news: their $200 omakase is worth staying up until midnight to book—and you might have to. The minimalist Sonagi comes from the chef behind Katsu Sando (and Kura Sushi, his family’s restaurant which closed in 2019). The menu mixes traditional Japanese techniques with Korean touches, and the result is one of the most memorable sushi experiences we’ve had this year. Dishes change with the seasons, but during the two-hour, 19-course meal you can expect bites like monkfish liver tarts with caviar, cut rolls filled with silky soy-marinated crab, and delicate sea trout sashimi rolled in toasted sesame seeds. There’s also an extensive sake menu with a few picks the chef brought back from Japan. As mentioned, refresh your browser at midnight to snag rolling reservations released 30 days in advance.
