Sushi Seafood

Q is a sushi restaurant that was opened by its Japan-loving owner in 2013 in what is now considered the liveliest area in Los Angeles: Downtown. The restaurant’s owner was a regular at the shop in Tokyo that the current chef at Q, Hiro, was running in the past. Amazed by Hiro’s skills, the owner decided to bring him over from Japan and has now entrusted the restaurant to him.

The first thing that greets customers when they walk through the hideaway-style door situated beneath a sign which simply reads “Q” is the establishment’s stylish Japanese atmosphere. The majestic color of black walnut wood begins in the ceiling, which appears to have been modeled after waves in the ocean, and continues down the walls and to the counters. Round lights made to resemble Japanese paper lanterns make for artistic interior lighting. The gold folding screens displayed on the wall, Japanese antiques, and art on display are all from the owner’s private collection. The artistic space created by a perfect fusion of traditional Japanese and modern styles is sure to excite all who dine there.

The cuisine served up in this delightfully artistic space is traditional Edomae-style sushi. Chef Hiro’s work is very thorough and artistic. Customers are charmed by his skillful handiwork and surprised by the flavor of each piece as they enjoy their meals. All of the restaurant’s rice and seasonings are brought in from Japan, and roughly 60% of the fish used is flown in from Japan three times a week as well. Chef Hiro says that seafood from Japan is higher quality than that of America and that the freshness, texture, and flavor are completely different, so he tries to use Japanese seafood wherever possible.

The restaurant has garnered many regulars thanks to the chef’s efforts to provide a sushi experience comparable to the highest-end sushi bars in Tokyo, and tables are always fully booked. Dinner is offered twice, once from 6 p.m. and again from 8 p.m., and is only available by reservation. Both lunch and dinner are available as one of two courses decided on by the chef. A special premium menu is available as well for customers who request it up to two days in advance of their reservation.
