There seems to be sushi at every corner in Los Angeles, but Downtown L.A. in particular boasts a diversity of options. Little Tokyo in itself is sushi central and not far from it are powerhouses like Sushi Zo and Sugarfish. You’ll get a good mix of affordable plus luxurious choices – all without driving very far.
