Nozawa Bar

In a word (ok two words) OH MY. We went to the second seating last night. (8:00). The 10 guests are ushered in together as if boarding a plane. Located in the rear of Sugarfish in Beverly Hills, with sign on the private room that reads "employees" or something similar to that. Anyways, the staff of four in this secluded room, couldn't have been more accommodating. Once seated, the feast begins. Within 5 minutes of arriving, the first course is plated and presented in front of you. Drink orders are taken and delivered quickly. Off and running and about 14 courses later, you are sedated with delight. Nozawa has only the best ingredients at hand for sure. If I were forced to find a fault, it would be the timing. From start to finish, 90 minutes had elapsed. Considering the meal is not a small amount of money ($150, food only), I would of enjoyed lingering longer. One can't help but become friends with your fellow sushi diners, being such a small group, I also enjoyed the bantering with our sushi chef host. Very nice man, indeed.
