Matsuhisa: "The Holy Grail of Sushi" Matsuhisa Tip by kimberlyfisher1

Matsuhisa, Los Angeles: 2 reviews and 0 photos

Nobu Matsuhisa is the master of sushi. His namesake restaurant on Restaurant Row, Matsuhisa has been one of the most highly acclaimed sushi places in the world, where Nobu can be seen frequently greeting his guest in loud print pants.

Favorite Dish: With more than 100 dishes, the menu is so diverse that it's best to order the dazzling omakase tasting menu. It begins with Matsuhisa's signature cold dishes, such as lobster seviche and jumbo clam with yuzu. Thin strips of halibut or yellowtail are given an unexpected twist from ingredients like garlic and cilantro. The tasting also features items like the buttery toro, delicate uni and silky yellowtail. Cooked dishes, like Kobe beef and black cod in miso, compliment the meal.
