Hit Hokusai for the first time last nite. Sat at the bar in front of their sushi master, one of the best I have come across in LA. Fish cut long, thin and floppy, just enough for a good size bite. Perfect fish to rice ratio. Nice staff, sake good, quarter and half bottles available. Uni spectacular. Tried a few of the cooked dishes, which were fine, esp. the eggplant with miso. Rolls excellent.
There are restaurants like Mori, Zo, Urasawa that you go for the best sushi experience. And then there are restaurants you go for a great dining experience, with ambiance (I am huge on that), service and mood. Hokusai is at the top of that category.
Space is very stylish and lovely, will be back soon.
