Great Find: Sasabune

One of my favorite restaurants in LA was Sasabune. Any in-the-know Angeleno knows that Sasabune's hand-picked daily fish selection, the "trust me" chef's omakase, the heavenly combination of fish on a warm bed of rice, the no california rolls rule, the perfect sauces and garnishes and homemade soy sauce equals unrivaled sushi pleasure.

This little Upper East side gem flies under the radar--perhaps b/c it's located way east on 1st Avenue or because there's no celebrity chef draw (I've eaten at Morimoto and Nobu and still think Sasabune is better)--and has been open since the end of 2006. It's a shame it took me this long to eat here, but I'm glad I finally did. What an amazing meal.
