Sushi Gen

ADDRESS: 422 E Second St, Los Angeles, CA 90012
CUISINE: Japanese/Sushi
FEATURES: Handicap Access, Kid Friendly, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly
DETAILS

What with rush-hour traffic, reservation books filled months in advance, no parking and having to sign countless autographs (this annoyance pertains to celebrities only), dining out for dinner in L.A. can be a hassle. So why not treat yourself to an excellent lunch at Sushi Gen, where midday offerings are an absolute bargain. The business crowd packs this simple, white-linen dining room in Little Tokyo for the fresh sushi and friendly service. While there isn't a list of architecturally complex, over-sauced sushi rolls, and you may not find a rare, potentially lethal fish from the Pacific, Sushi Gen specializes in very traditional but reliably fresh sushi. Locals swear by the lunchtime sashimi sampler, which boasts a generous selection of artfully arranged slices of raw fish. Cuts include sea urchin, albacore tuna, yellowtail and toro, while a few tempura and teriyaki dishes are available as well.

 

 

 

 

Beer, wine and sake available. Serving lunch Mon-Fri, dinner Mon-Sat. Closed Sun.

"Lunch is often a better deal than dinner at restaurants, but Sushi Gen's sashimi lunch special is in a league of its own."

Los Angeles Times
