Solo Traveler Seeking Amazing Sushi in LA at non-Astronomical Prices

jmie79 | Aug 23, 201110:52 PM     55

Hi all -- I'm heading to LA for business three days next week (from SF), and I'm hoping to locate two sushi destinations. I know there's a lot of boards on LA sushi, but I have some specific needs:

(1) I'm going solo, and I don't do tables alone. So sushi bar required.
(2) One night, it'd be nice to do omakaze for around $100, but that could creep up a bit if the quality really warrants it. $200 is a firm max, so no Urasawa for me. I'm carless in downtown; I could cab out as far as Santa Monica, but don't want to head much further afield than that. Minimal bonus points for nice ambiance and good service, zero bonus points for hipness or celebrity - my focus is on the fish!
(3) Another night, I'd like to wander over to Japantown, and find a place there. A bit higher premium on ambiance and service for this night (but still, no credit for hipness).

Thanks in advance!
