Guess who's on the top of the list for best new LA Sleeps & Eats?
While fall in L.A. may not have the crisp weather or brilliant foliage found in other cities, it does bring with it an onslaught of buzzy new openings. From craft whiskey cocktails in Santa Monica to SUGARFISH-approved hand rolls in DTLA, Charlotte Steinway rounds up the 10 launches you need to know about this fall

SUGARFISH by sushi nozawa, with multiple locations in Los Angeles, is a different kind of sushi dining experience. Our restaurants serve only traditional sushi of the highest quality based on Chef Nozawa’s style of sushi. Our passion is to carry forward his great tradition and style of food – which many believe is the best sushi there is. 

SUGARFISH embodies the philosophy of celebrated sushi chef Kazunori Nozawa, well-known for his Trust Me-style sushi at Sushi Nozawa, which operated in Studio City from 1985-2012. Nozawa shuns “American-style” extravagant rolls and fusion dishes. Instead he concentrates on the purity of his basic ingredients— nurturing relationships with the finest fish purveyors across the globe, cutting his fish with an artisan’s painstaking care, and even making his own fresh soy sauce and ponzu.

Exquisitely simple menu of consistently fresh and luscious fish, with melt in your mouth warm sushi rice. Warning: may be habit forming. Enjoy.

One of the best Sushi places in the Westside of LA. Fresh fish that is tender and melts in your mouth!

Amazing sushi. The quality of the fish, taste of the rice, and sauces are incredible. One of my top 2 favorite Sushi places in Los Angeles. Usually a pretty long wait. They don't accept call-ahead. Stop by, put your name and number on the list, then go walk around the promenade for a while.

This is one of the best sushi restaurants I've ever been to! And it's not just because of the sushi itself, but because of the experience. I highly recommend going with either the Trust Me or Trust Me Lite options on the menu. There are a number of items included with each option. As each is ready, it comes from the kitchen. The fish tastes amazing. It melted in my mouth...mmm so good! The prices are very reasonable here. Note: They do not take reservations, but it's worth the wait. Also, they don't deliver, but you can use the Postmates app for that.

This is my favorite sushi place. If you haven't been, it is a must if you're ever in the LA area. Be prepared to be wowed by their simplicity, quality and flavor. I would recommend the "The Trust Me", you will not be dissapointed!

Everyone has told me how much they love Sugarfish, and I was worried that my incredibly high expectations would make my actual experience not as good... BUT, Sugarfish somehow still managed to blow my mind and ruin every almost every other sushi place for me (in a good way) I got the "Trust Me" which is the perfect amount of food if you are hungry but not ravenous. Everything was outstanding, but my favorite things were the sashimi, the albacore and the yellowtail. I can't explain to you the mouthgasm that these sushi pieces induced. You have to experience it yourself - people are not lying when they say this place is the best sushi they have ever had.
