Kaneyoshi@Little Tokyo ★★★

Kaneyoshi x Inaba Collaboration. On Tuesdays for limited time only. Returning to Kaneyoshi after their well-deserved Michelin Star. Appetizers and Omakase Sushi were skillfully hand-crated. Beautiful execution and delicious taste. Food portions were just right. Great selection of sake. Hopped to Sawa next door for cocktails after dinner. Reservations available on release dates via Tock.

bar sawa@Little Tokyo ★★★

Great Omakase with Awesome Cocktail Pairing. Fun and chill environment. Fresh sushi carefully handcrafted. They did a blind tasting game. I guessed all the blind tasting sushi right. Natalia the bartender was great. I had her pick the cocktail pairing for me. All the cocktails she picked for me was perfect. $170 Omakase Course. Cocktail pairing was $45 for 3 glasses, which was a good deal. Reservations via Tock. $6 parking at structure.
