Sushi of Gari now open at Eastown

May 24, 2016

Eastown has added an exciting new restaurant to its expanding roster of retail tenants, which already includes Hollywood’s first Dunkin Donuts, Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop, Pressed Juicery, CVS, and Barry’s Bootcamp. Open now is Sushi of Gari, which originated in New York City in 1997. Masatoshi “Gari” Sugio became a sushi chef in Japan at the age of 19, moving to the United States in 1978 where he worked as a sushi chef for several Japanese restaurants in New York City before he decided to open his own establishment. His main focus has always been to service his sushi with the original sauce and toppings he has created to enhance the sensitive taste and flavor of each morsel of fish.

Accoring to Eater LA:

Sushi of Gari Hollywood will follow a similar format as its New York locations, with a focus on omakase dining along with a la carte options and lunch specials. However, a meal here will not come cheap, as lunch specials alone start at $25 for four pieces of sushi and a sushi roll, and run up to $55 for the Tuna of Gari.

All in all, Sushi of Gari is sure to become a fantastic power lunch option for those looking for something a little nicer than the Sugarfish just down the street.
