Welcome to the heart of sushi row. Ventura Blvd. has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to quality sushi, and Asanebo remains one of its finest. While other places are all about stripped-down, traditional sushi experiences, the sushi at Asanebo is more like something you might find in an art museum. And by that, we mean it’s goddamn beautiful. Choose from one of three menus (ranging from $85-$200) and you’ll get some of the best (and prettiest) sushi in LA. White shrimp with gold flakes on top? Flaming conch shell? Don’t worry, it’s just as delicious as it is attractive.
