About a month ago, I noticed (as did a couple others on this board) that Saito sushi (on Sunset in Silverlake) was closed. Just wanted to report that it is open and as good as ever. I took a friend from the neighborhood there last night who had never dared to venture into the scary mini-mall where it is located and she loved it. A couple of people at the sushi bar had ordered omakase, and we kind of just followed along, ordering what looked good, which included the mackeral, the red snapper, and some very good, very fresh scallop sushi.
For those who are curious, the construction next door is going to be a baby shop -- maybe it's a sign that the mall is going to see some much needed improvements in months to come.
So glad to have learned about this place. It's now my favorite sushi place in the 'hood :-)
