Review: Nozawa Bar Beverly Hills

High at the top of my bucket list of things to do in Los Angeles was to visit Nozawa Bar, the omakase version of my favorite restaurant of all time (obviously Sugarfish). It’s just hard to get around to because it’s reservation only and as a master procrastinator, that can be a tough button to button. Safe to say, it was everything I ever expected. Chef Fujita was hospitable and hilarious, and every bite was delicious. Normally I don’t love toro, but the toro here was the best I’ve had in my life and I had to go for seconds. This place is a must do for sushi lovers and haters alike. Here’s an attempt at posting the courses in order:
