Help. I'm visiting a friend in Santa Monica (near Montana & 17th Street). Do you have any good sushi restaurant recommendations for me?
Criteria is as follows:
Good quality fish is a must.
Don't want to drive to far. (5-7 miles max).
Dinner for 2 less than $70, total. Includes 2 alcoholic beverages.
I like traditional-style sushi. No rolls. I don't use soy sauce.
Takes reservations. Or the wait won't be more than 15 mins.
I love live sweet shrimp and toro (I know this breaks my $70 limit, but I'm just saying it for reference purposes).
I've eaten at Hide on Sawtelle already. Just curious if you have any other recommendations.
Not looking for Urasawa kind of sushi, obviously. And I'm not a fan of Sushi Roku.
Long story short...I like really good sushi, but I don't want to pay those prices tonight. Have any good values that fit my pocketbook tonight?
