This is a one-stop destination for everyone in the family from babies on up.

It’s a great time to be a sushi aficionado. The Japanese food scene in Los Angeles is stronger than ever as the American palate is evolving to be less squeamish towards raw fish and much more inclined towards simplicity than the fanciful mayonnaise-drenched rolls of yesteryear. There seems to be sushi at every corner in Los Angeles, but Downtown L.A. in particular boasts a diversity of options. Little Tokyo in itself is sushi central and not far from it are powerhouses like Sushi Zo and Sugarfish. You’ll get a good mix of affordable plus luxurious choices – all without driving very far.
