I'm going to LA to visit a friend in a few weeks and really want to try some great LA sushi. My friend lives in Pasadena, right outside LA and has a car so I don't think there are any restrictions on location. A friend here who considers himself a "sushi snob" (his words not mine) highly recommended Masu. Another friend from CA recommended sushi nozawa or sushi echigo. I'm hoping to keep the dinner less than $100 (not including drinks) so I'm not sure if sushi nozawa is out of this price range. Any suggestions? Would Masu be good for what I'm looking for? Thanks in advance!
