Izakaya Akatora

James Beard Award–winning food critic Brad A. Johnson once wrote that Southern California boasts the best sushi in the country. So his list of the region's best sushi restaurants—which includes Izakaya Akatora—could be considered the best of the best. Like many others, the food critic adores Izakaya Akatora’s omakase menu. A Japanese tradition wherein guests let the chef prepare a tasting menu of whatever he'd like, omakase here is served at four different prix fixe price points. Although the dining experience focuses on Izakaya Akatora's traditional sushi and sashimi, Johnson praised the new-style carpaccio as the thing Izakaya Akatora "does better than anyone else." Read on for others’ favorite dishes.

LA Weekly also praised the restaurant’s carpaccio, including the salmon with jalapeño ponzu.

Other LA Magazine suggests guests looking for a unique dining experience “indulge in the barracuda nigiri and a tomahawk steak.”

LAist found the standout dishes to be the yellowtail carpaccio, wagyu beef tataki with wasabi jalapeño salsa, and green-tea pudding.

Zagat named the restaurant one of the "8 Hottest New Japanese Spots in LA."
