WHY High-quality sushi that’s a bargain at lunch—the $11.50 special gets you miso soup, five pieces of sushi and a blue-crab hand roll; many regulars opt for the chirashi sushi box for $17.
WHAT Owned by a pioneering family who started the second sushi bar in the U.S. and has been running restaurants in Little Tokyo for six decades, Sushi Go 55 is profoundly traditional—this is not a rock ‘n roll sushi joint. Chefs are focused and quiet, and the emphasis is on very fresh, very good food. Reasonable prices, by sushi standards.
