I have been trolling chowhound and other sites looking for a new Edo-style sushi place to try for hubby's birthday. We want to be able to try as much unique/exotic fish as possible, and the rice must be considered very high quality. It is on a Sunday so Nozawa in BH is out. We don't mind spending $$$ but it has to be worth it.We are regulars at Shunji but he does not want Kaiseki this time. Urasawa is technically Kaiseki and we don't want to spend quite that much. I don't like Sushi Zo because he puts ginger in the seasoning for many of the fish. We do not like the fusion places like Matsuhisa/Nobu etc. We tried Katsuya and Sasabune et al and have concluded they are Hollywood/westernized places and not to be taken seriously. I think it is gone but for reference hated R-23 as well. Mori is off the list with all the changes. Places like Kiriko & sushi sushi are fine but I don't find them special or worth it. We used to go to Shibucho but had some problems with Shige so we won't go back. Not interested in Nishimora, heard too many bad things about his pricing. As Torrance ex-pats, love Nozomi but looking to try a new place. Toying with Sushi Gen or Kiyokawa.I think Kiyokawa is Kaiseki but they seem to have a lot more sushi in the Omakase vs Shunji so that might be ok. I am also open to Orange County. Thoughts?
