Culver City might be the only part of Los Angeles without a Sugarfish, but Uzumaki more than fills the affordable, quality sushi hole. This six-month-old spot on Washington is sleek and quiet, with a small sushi bar and dining room, and no hour-long waits. There are a couple of omakase options (maxing out at $34), or you can order some of the quality nigiri and sashimi a la carte. There’s a stream of local regulars who have caught on that this is the best bet for sushi in the neighborhood, and are hoping they can keep walking-in for an easy, casual lunch.
