715 Sushi@Little Tokyo ★★★

Absolutely Amazing Michelin Star Omakase Restaurant. Exquisite and everything beautifully handcrafted. Traditional omakase with a blend of modern techniques. Can the reflection of the sushi from the glossiness of the plates. Love their concept of "Oma-sake" - let them pick the sake for you. They even have a pair of silver Doraemon sake cups. The newly released Ohmine Winter Arrival "Sparkling" Nigori was smooth and perfect for celebration. Elegant Swedish bottle design. The $300 Masumi Nanago Sake reminds me of the $800 Kuheiji HInoKISHI. Very distilled and pure with a good amount of alcohol level. Great service. Quiet, fun, and chill environment. Intimate 8-seat restaurant. Sushi Chef Seigo-san is from Osaka. Fun fact: the name 715 is actually derived from Seigo-san's name: Se (7), I (1), and Go (5). Clever! Diego-san is also the best photographer. $350 per person. Heard corkage fee is $100. Reservations via Tock. Super limited street metered parking or paid parking lot.
