This unobtrusive second floor pearl nestles above the likes of Gucci and Jimmy Choo in the heart of Beverly Hills. Hiro-san mastered his trade at the legendary Tokyo-based Ginza Sushi-ko and the masterful art of Hiro-san’s Kyoto style sushi preparation shines only as brightly as the two Michelin stars on the wall. There’s no menu in Urasawa’s fine omakase (entrust) dining, so Hiro-san decides what goes on your plate, from goma dofu topped in wasabi and gold, to the melt-on-your-tongue uni nigiri (sea urchin). His formal sushi dining uses the finest ingredients (he ships his fish fresh from Tokyo’s Tsukiji market) and each crafted cut – all visible from Urasawa’s prep table – makes for an exceptional culinary experience that will make sushi purists weep with joy. Exclusivity limits Urasawa to just 10 seats around their simple 300 year-old tabletops, so booking is an absolute must.
