This week Jonathan 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, the monkfish liver, purple potato wrapped around blue cheese, simmered abalone and slivered sardines.
