Uni...great places for it (not only for sushi)

I was initially afraid to try uni because it looked so weird, but I was intrigued, and I found out it's really good! I've only had it prepared in a non-Japanese fashion once when I had the squid ink pasta in uni sauce at Il Grano and I've really enjoyed it. And I adore Go's Mart and pretty much anything I've tried that Go has made with uni has been very tasty.

What are some other places that have interesting preparations using (one would hope...high quality) uni.

On my list: Takao in Brentwood (various preparations), Villetta in Brentwood (pasta with uni sauce). I think I also saw halibut with uni something or other on the Hungry Cat (SaMo) menu.

I'm located in WLA so local places are great, but if there is a special preparation that is a bit of a drive, that is ok too.

Thanks in advance to all you uni lovers out there for helping this uni newbie learn the ropes!
