hiko sushi?

LA Weekley has a feature review on Hiko in their current issue. They call it "A Transcendent Experience."

My wife and I have been going since it opened. Always great. Minor complaints, Price has been rising over the years, the same dishes always seem to get served although they are always terrific (we sit at the bar). We have a friendly relationship with the owner and his wife since we go early and are often the only ones there. We talk to him all the time and I get the impression he is shy rather than unfreindly. He's always been nice to us so this Sushi Natzi thing is a bit overblown. If we go less than usual is because of the price increase, but still the best sushi in town bar none...

Sushi recs in the West LA/Santa Monica Airport area

Thanks for the recs. Yes, we love The Hump but I was thinking Sushi Tenn or that place on Gateway (can't remember the name). Been to Mori and had an awful meal for $450. Will never go back. Hiko is great, but we've been there too. Wanted to try something new and close by (Friday night, only staying for a few hours).

Have a friend flying in to SM Airport this weekend. He's been to the Hump and wants to try something else in the same area for comparison. I know what I like, but what's the consensus from others?

Thanks in advance.

Two restaurants in my neighborhood I just don't get ...

Excellent post. Some of their other dishes the detractors obviously havent tried are even better. But don't tell them. The wait to get in is long enough already...

Right, it's so bad you have to wait an hour to get seated. You don't get it.

just ate at mozza

Had the margherita pizza on Tuesday and was disappointed. Too doughy and a bit short on flavor. There are at least a dozen pizza places better that I can tnink of off hand (West End, Abbotts, Antiqua, the place across from Sony Studios, etc.).

If you're going just for the pizza don't bother.

Places serving Copper River Salmon

It's late in the season for this, but what places are still serving Copper River Salmon?

Thanks Hounds in advance.
