The original Sushi Nozawa in Studio City inspired Seinfeld’s Soup Nazi, but luckily this omakase-only space at the back of the Beverly Hills Sugarfish has dialed back a bit on the craziness (you won’t get kicked out just because the chef doesn’t like the look of you). You still have no choice over what you’re given to eat, and there are only two ten-person seatings a night (if someone is running late, you’re in serious trouble). It’s all worth it for the 22 courses of sushi that runs the gamut from expected to adventurous

Chaumont Café and Bakery
The pastries at Chaumont in Beverly Hills often steal the spotlight, but don’t forget about lunch. We’re fans of the spicy tuna sandwich.
The Polo Lounge
