Kiriko, Little Osaka in Los Angeles
It’s worth navigating L.A. traffic (and a large commercial complex) for beautifully crafted but non-fussy sushi at under-the-radar Kiriko. Chef and owner Ken Namba will orchestrate a meal that heightens all your senses. He regularly smokes a marbled piece of salmon, slices it thick, and may wrap it in mango one day and translucent kelp topped with caviar the next. When in season, truffle shavings are sprinkled on top of halibut. You may want to hurry because it won’t stay a secret too much longer.
