The Next Step in the Evolution of the Sushi Bar

Hosted by

shunji.jpgJonathan Gold reviews Shunji, a new sushi bar in West LA housed in humble digs (the facade looks like a giant chile bowl). The roughly 40-seat restaurant is unlike other sushi bars in that it doesn't focus on sushi. Jonathan suggests the omakase menu. Highlights include a concentrated cube of compressed fresh tomatoes, squid with truffles, monkfish liver, purple potato wrapped around blue cheese, simmered abalone and the sardines.
