OK, here's the dilemma:
The SO has a friend in town, they want sushi. They care about ambiance more than quality and I'd rather eat the best possible, even if it means by hand sitting on a milk crate on the sidewalk.
She's thinking Wabi Sabi on Abbot Kinney, I'm thinking Sawtelle, but it has to be nice looking as well as delicious, and I don't think they'd stand for a Fu Rai Bo-esque wait.
Oh, and to make it harder, I'd like to not break the bank.
Is this impossible?
