Despite a cringe-worthy name that even we want to roll our eyes at, What The Fish is a remarkably solid sushi restaurant. Besides Yakuza on Silver Lake Blvd., there aren’t many others in the area (you’ll have to venture to Atwater Village or Downtown LA for that). Nothing here will blow your mind, but the fish quality is high, there’s something on the menu for everyone (crispy rice! Traditional nigiri! Baked unagi rolls!), and the prices hover around $20-$30 per person.
