NOW OPEN: Secret Sushi Nozawa Bar in Beverly Hills
It feels like a speakeasy, only the highlight at the new Nozawa Bar is sushi. Weirdly, it’s a secret sushi restaurant in the back room of an existing sushi restaurant but with its own chef: Osamu Fujita. There are only two seatings at lunch and two seatings at dinner, so reservations are a must. And no need to fuss over a menu—there is none! It’s a true omakase experience, each course served simultaneously to everyone, and dishes like sashimi and hand rolls are based entirely on the day’s fresh market catch.
