Tsujita's highly anticipated third L.A. location will not be serving ramen (or tsukemen, for that matter), much to the chagrin of rameniacs out there. Located just a stone's throw north of the two Little Osaka storefronts where dozens still line up in 80-degree weather to slurp piping hot bowls of noodles, Sushi Tsujita will instead be serving traditional edomae sushi in an omakase format, come August 12.
Shigeru Kato, a Tokyo chef with over 35 years' experience, will helm the 10-seat sushi bar (a half dozen banquettes round out the seating inside). With bamboo and wood slats on the walls, arranged into geometric and geodesic designs, the interior space cuts a sharp, yet elegant, figure. Meanwhile, the outside lounge area is minimalist, with the exception of the bold chandelier that seems like it would be out of place, yet somehow works. —The Offalo
