Echigo is located on Santa Monica Blvd. near Amherst on the second floor of a standard strip mall in West Los Angeles. There are both surface and underground parking. When you enter, there is a hand written sign that warns you that there are no special rolls, spicy rolls, or other non-sushi/sashimi offerings. No teriyaki, soup or appetizers. Just sushi and sashimi. There is a standard sushi bar with a few tables, nothing fancy. They offer beer, saki and wine, and there is no full bar. It is clear that the treat is the sushi and sashimi. Fresh and simple, and incredibly tasty. We were there with two couples, and our friends had been there on multiple occasions. At their advice, we sat at the sushi bar and allowed the sushi chef to pick our sushi and sashimi, and were glad we did. The crab roll was divine. We tried multiple other offerings, from tuna, eel roll, yellowtail, butterfish, black snapper and halibut. Each offering was better than the next. While the meal was quite expensive, you get what you pay for. Fresh, well prepared and simply presented sushi. We will certainly return.
