Relax, these are just opinions. :-)
Here's mine at the moment: Chiba Sushi, on Saticoy.
I know many foodies who insist this is the best sushi they've had in L.A., and I've been here three times total in the last few months (due to a friend who moved out there). It was always damn good - but not amazing,
People are highly defensive about their sushi restaurants, and I'll say that Chiba is definitely a very good place with a cool owner/chef. But it's certainly not in the rarified upper echelon territory of places like Sushi Sushi, to me.
