Here are some of my favorite places to eat.

 

For sushi I like the Sushi Spot in Tarzana.  You may find better sushi (I can really only think of one or two place I like better) but not in this price range.

Through the month of February you need to get to Le Comptoire - a pop up at Tiara Cafe in downtown LA.  But don;t take my word for it - see what Jonathan Gold has to say.
