ISO Restaurant(s) Serving Matsutake Mushroom Dishes

coughka | Oct 20, 2008 02:42 PM

My dad's coming into town for a visit, and one of his favorite foods in the entire world is matsutake mushrooms. Since it's seasonal and somewhat pricey, he hasn't had it for a while, and I'd like to take him to a restaurant that serves at least one good matsutake dish. Can anyone give me any suggestions?

I'm looking for a restaurant that serves matsutake dishes a la carte, and I'm looking for a matsutake dish where the mushroom and its flavor/scent is the focus of the dish, not just an accompaniment. While Urasawa's matsutake soup does sound amazing, I can't afford it right now.

I live in the Miracle Mile area but am willing to travel to Torrance, Little Tokyo, Sawtelle, etc.

Also, my dad will be in town on Nov. 1. Is this too late for matsutake?

Any suggestions you have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
