......Chef URASAWA was not much fun. Why not? First when we asked re taking pictures, he declared no photographs allowed. No explanation offered. Just no. Next, Chef accepted generous pours of our wines, which he enjoyed all evening. We brought and opened 7 bottles for 4 of us in our party plus sharing with the Chef: 2 old vintage bubblies,... More

A colleague of mine intoned jokingly that" you basically need to sell something before you can pull up a seat at the sushi bar"... having said that he demonstrated his influence in Hollywood by reserving a spot at this intimate and eponymous exclusive eatery. Good to have friends like this, says the femme. Only small group seated with us as... More

Just an amazing dinner experience in a minimalistic chic setting. A must when in LA and Rodeo Drive. Urasawa delivers inventive sushi using only top fresh produce. A once-in-a-lifetime experience!

In between shopping on R.D. make sure you have lunch or dinner here. If you think Japan has the finest restaurants, you will see that this place outshines them all. The food was of outstanding taste and freshness and nobody beats their presentation. High Cuisine at it's best.

OK, it's expensive. But with just ten guests seated at the prep counter and an additional table that seats four, this is basically a private dinner prepared by a master with nothing but the finest ingredients. It's well worth the price of admission. Dinner is about three to four hours long, traversing a wide variety of food items. I captured... More

If you love sushi then you need to experience Urasawa. We went with a party of 4 and were seated in front of our sushi chef. The sushi chef spent the next 2 hours making delicacies just for our party one by one. He would carefully examine each cut of fish, discarding it if it did not meet his expectations.... More

This was a once in a lifetime experience you will want to have over and over. All of the courses are a spectacular work of art that melts in your mouth. I didn't know sushi could taste so good.

Urasawa has built well on the former Masa owned restaurant, refining traditions and keeping well established combinations such as Toro and Imperial Beluga, Foie Gras Shabu Shabu etc. The most amazing feature in my opinion is the calm, yet intense atmosphere in which every dish is prepared in front of you. Although expensive, it is worth it if you enjoy... More

We managed to get a booking for 4 on at the bar on a Thursday evening (the bar seats 9 people max) and there's a separate table that can seat 2, so we were pretty lucky. Service was friendly and attentive but not overwhelming, the atmosphere was Zen like. Watching the sushi chef carve into each fish and preparing the... More

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighbourhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
