Just had an amazing sushi dinner (again!) at Bluefin in Newport Coast. Sure it's expensive, but I don't think there's anything south of L.A. that is remotely in the same league. I have tried many, and the only thing that I think comes close is Hamamori, which is not as good and even more expensive. I think Bluefin is great! Like to hear if anyone thinks there is something equally good for less money in this region of OC.
