I recently returned from a trip to Japan where I acquired a taste for sushi/sashimi. The memory of a 7:00 AM breakfast at a fabulous sushi bar in Tsukiji has left me with an insatiable appetite for more of a good thing. Last night, my husband and I went to Four on Six (Also written as "4 on 6")in Encino and loved every morsel. I have included a link below to a Daily News review written by Larry Lipson. Although I am a newcomer to the world of sushi, I believe that I have tasted enough now to begin to discern the good from the mediocre. Everything that we had at Four on Six was outstanding. We started with toro sashimi that was mild and melted in our mouths. We followed Larry Lipson's suggestion and ordered both the spicy tuna and spicy albacore biscotti and were blown away by the flavors as well as the cripness of the rice cake. We had eel (sushi) two ways: with salt and with sauce but the sauce was not the sweet, cloying variety that we have had at other places. We also had live scallop sashimi and hamachi sashimi. There may have been one or two other dishes; unfortunately, I failed to take notes. We had a bottle of premium sake and a large bottle of beer. The bill came to about $120 before tip which we thought to be quite reasonable in comparison to several other sushi bars that we have been to in the past few weeks.
Jun Maruyama, co-owner and manager, greeted us warmly and came over a few times to make sure that we were happy. Chef/owner Kiminobu Saito and his assistant were very hepful with their suggestions as to what to order. All in all, a very enjoyable and satisfying experience.
