Shoei and Jenny Uraski, natives of Japan and Korea, had grown tired of the snooty atmosphere that seemed to pervade Los Angeles sushi bars. So they decided to return the focus to fresh sushi, salads, and other seafood at their own place, Ajisai Japanese Restaurant. True to the couple's vision, the space is small—so make sure to call ahead for a reservation.
According to regulars, you're likely to see Shoei and Jenny behind the sushi bar or walking around the dining room. They can help you choose an appetizer, but locals suggest starting with the biscotti, which is actually spicy tuna on fried rice cakes. For your meal, try the sashimi lunch of dinner, which comes with popular salmon sashimi, as well as tuna, yellowtail, and whitefish (plus albacore at dinner). Straight sushi rolls, some of the freshest in the area, encompass the Mr. Nixon (cream cheese and freshwater eel) and the Mr. Shoei (spicy garlic shrimp cooked with sesame oil). Or order one of their specialty salads, which sport toppings such as crisp tofu or fried calamari.
