I have a work colleague who has never tasted sushi. He seems to be an adventurous eater (loving Thai, Indian, Peruvian etc...) So, i do not in any way want to turn him off to sushi...first impressions carry a lot of weight.
Any suggestions where I should take him for his first sushi experience? Unfortunately, we're limited to do it during lunchtime. Taiko in El Segundo? Michi in Manhattan Beach? I'd be happy to go as far as Gardena if someone could recommend a good sushi place for lunch.
