Located on the 21st floor of a downtown high rise, Takami is one of the most elegant, unique Los Angeles sushi restaurants you don’t have to mortgage anything to try. The expansive dining area wraps around three sides of the building’s penthouse, including a glass-walled, partially open outer area where diners can absorb close-up city views, and an inner dining area for those who get cold more easily. The dinner menu has its unique selection of rolls, flavorful entrees, and one of the best examples of spicy tuna on crispy rice the city has to offer. Strange creations like the poki martini (spicy tuna and accompanying garnishes in a martini glass) add some originality. The restaurant also shares the floor with the Elevate Lounge, for after-dinner partying.
The haiku version:
In a classy, urban space
High above L.A.
