Urasawa, Los Angeles

4 of 32

An average bill for two people at Urasawa can easily top $1,000 with tip and tax, so it’s only natural that everyone asks, “Is it worth it?” Yes. The cooking at this tiny restaurant—which seats 10 people at a time—is personal and theatrical. Chef and owner Hiroyuki Urasawa flies in the freshest fish each day, so you can never predict which delicacies will roll out in front of you. A sliver of fatty toro, a rich cut of tuna, may arrive on a custom-carved ice pedestal, or a personal hot stone grill may appear before you as the catch of the day is quickly seared on both sides. Just be ready for the check.
