My favorite would be Go's Mart although I haven't been in some time now. Great kawagishi toro (kawagishi, kawagishi, kawagishi, how sweet are thee?), and the sweet shrimp topped with shaved white truffles, and truffle oil, blue crab hand roll, Holy Cow or seared Kobe beef, monkish liver pate with goji berries and miso sauce, oh, I am so overdue on a visit. I wonder if he's open on Sunday evenings, or even for lunch on Sundays???
(Sadly, I haven't been to Sushi Zo, for ages because of a bad experience there. Fish was excellent and fine as always, but it had to do with management and service).
I liked Kiriko the last time I was there maybe a few months ago, especially for that black truffle ice cream (i think it's like 8 or 10 bucks for a couple scoops) and the salmon wrapped with mango and toro and yellowtail, and oysters although it didn't at all for me at least hit the heights of Go's Mart (or Sushi Zo).
By the way, is Mori still good, since the main chef/owner sold it, and do they still carry Uni from Hokkaido and that persimmon jelly with sliced fruit dessert dish???
In the neighborhood, I just tried Yakitoriya on Sawtelle and their duck and shittakhe mushroom ravioli in a truffle oil sauce were great but sadly they ran out of the coffee jelly.
Also, where can I get a great Coffee Jelly or Coffee Jello, price no object, I already know about Mousse Fantasy on Sawtelle though I haven't tried the version at Frances Bakery in Little Tokyo yet (though they have amazing chocolate truffles so I always seem to go for those).
Besides Shunji, are there are great new places for sushi?
