Description: WEST HOLLYWOOD. Sunny and bright, this vegan/vegetarian restaurant attracts diners from across the metro area looking for tasty, healthy, non-meat-based dishes.

Urasawa

218 N Rodeo Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210 310-247-8939

Description: BEVERLY HILLS. True connoisseurs of sushi gladly fork over $250 for much sought-after omakase-style meals from renowned sushi chef Hiroyuki Urasawa. Only a reservation grants entrance to this intimate, zen-like space, where you'll experience course after course of the freshest, most painstakingly prepared fish. While the menu changes often, past dishes have included seared toro (a prime, fatty cut of tuna) served on a hot stone, tataki-style Kobe beef with wasabi and sea salt, and a perfectly-textured slice of tofu topped with caviar and gold flakes. A decent sake selection is on-hand to accompany blissful culinary journeys, but take note ­ alcohol is not included in the price of dinner. Also, diners can choose the number of courses they would like ­ typically, it's 25 to 30.

Tengu

10853 Lindbrook Dr, Westwood Village, West Los Angeles, CA 90024 310-209-0071

Description: WESTWOOD. Trendy is definitely the name of the game here ­ the adjective applies to decor, waitstaff, customers, and food. Great sushi and tempura are served to an appreciative crowd, and desserts like coconut sorbet are not to be missed. A hotspot for hip Californians in the mood for terrific Japanese food.

Sushi Nozawa

11288 Ventura Blvd, Ste C, Studio City, CA 91604 818-508-7017

Description: STUDIO CITY. At this storefront eatery, you'll be treated to fresh, delicious sushi and good service. One quirk, however, is that the chef, although a master at his craft, has a reputation for being a bit demanding ­ both of himself and of diners. Folks are expected to order from the menu only and to obey arbitrary rules of dining, like eating a piece of sushi in a single mouthful. It's not unheard of for rule-breakers to be asked to leave. Your best bet is to sit at the bar, not request anything extraneous, and let the chef dole out what he deems appropriate. If you accept such idiosyncracies, you'll find traditional Japanese cuisine at its absolute best.

Sushi Masu

1911 Westwood Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025 310-446-4368

Description: WESTWOOD. At Sushi Masu, the rolls are as unique and pretty as they are flavorful. Regulars return frequently for melt-in-your-mouth raw fare, including delectable sea urchin and white tuna. For diners who prefer cooked cuisine, an array of dishes awaits, including teriyaki and soft-shell crab with vegetables. While the restaurant's decor is nothing to write home about, the incredible food and very reasonable prices are enough to pack the tiny spot on most nights ­ be sure to call ahead for a reservation.

Orris

2006 Sawtelle Blvd, West Los Angeles, CA 90025 310-268-2212

Description: WEST LOS ANGELES. Striking that rare balance of casual, inviting atmosphere and delicious, upscale food, Orris is a natural choice for a relatively quick but high-quality dinner. Headed by Hideo Yamashiro, the same chef behind popular (and more formal) Shiro in South Pasadena, Orris boasts a menu based around small plates, reasonably-priced and filling portions of items like smoked chicken and walnut salad, shrimp mousse ravioli in shiitake cream sauce, and prime filet mignon skewer with Roquefort butter. A decent selection of beers, wines, and sakes increases the restaurant's cachet.

Nakkara on Beverly

7669 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036 323-937-3100

Description: MELROSE. Mouthwatering flavors meet magnificent presentation at this casually hip Los Angeles eatery where Thai staples are recreated with innovative modern twists. The strikingly artistic plates are perfectly complemented by the sleek decor, comprised of cool blue walls, industrial concrete floors and vibrant flowers. Of course, the gorgeous furnishings take a back seat once diners dive into a feast of succulent chicken satay, spooned shrimp with fantastic chili lime dressing and sensational spicy hot basil chicken.

Mori Sushi

11500 W Pico Blvd, West Los Angeles, CA 90064 310-479-3939

Description: WEST LOS ANGELES. This understated spot doesn't even have its name on the sign ­ look instead for a rustic sketch of a fish. The minimalist interior features simple table and bar seating in order to place focus on the exquisite food. In fact, presentation of some of the city's freshest seafood is so breathtaking that diners have been known to comment that they didn't know whether to eat it or frame it. Try octopus carpaccio, broiled prawns, or fabulously fresh sashimi. Order a Kirin beer to highlight the flavors.

Matsuhisa

129 N La Cienega Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90211 310-659-9639

Description: BEVERLY HILLS. Matsuhisa is first-born sibling to the internationally trendy Nobu restaurants and is the chef-owner's original endeavor. It's not so given to fanfare as the others, and the relative quiet of the place is incredibly appealing to folks who prefer that the focus be on the cuisine. And what sublime food it is, thanks to an excellent sashimi salad, delectable tempura, and "new style" sashimi that gets a kick from Latin American flavors. Cooked items are also terrific, as is the omakase menu. And yes, it's a great spot for stargazing ­ no, not the celestial kind.

Mako

225 S Beverly Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90212 310-288-8338

Description: BEVERLY HILLS. The "small plate" concept is quite popular here. You could call it Japanese tapas (tapa-nese?), but the restaurant calls it ippin-ryouri. However you label it, it's a fun way to sample different items, especially with a group. The menu, while largely Japanese, ventures into other territory as well, and the final results are almost always successful. An Italian-influenced tomato and tofu salad is seasoned with shiso leaf-plum vinaigrette ­ a sort of Japanese salad caprese. Asian-style seafood risotto is a favorite, as is foie gras, artfully paired with lychee fruit.

Description: CULVER CITY. Lunch and dinner crowds flock here whether it be young professionals throughout the week or curious fish fanatics who come for their sushi fix on the weekends. While the decor is simple - white-washed walls, concrete bases and a silver-polished bar area - the flavorful rolls will certainly leave an indelible memory. Chef and owner Keizo Ishiba is an icon around town, celebrated for his fusion of French style with the tradition of Japanese small plates and sushi rolls. Allow the staff to guide your each choice, as they'll make your dining experience an art form and surprise the palate with an eruption of different tastes.

Beacon

3280 Helms Ave, Helms Building, Culver City, CA 90034 310-838-7500

Description: CULVER CITY. With a dining area that's on the small side, Beacon makes the most of its limited space with modern, Zen-inspired decor and two streetside patios. The pan-Asian spot keeps busy thanks to upscale fare and friendly prices. Try a small plate of black edamame before sampling dishes like chicken pad thai (which arrives with rice noodles and tofu) and yaki udon, both quite affordable. Should you choose to indulge, a decent by-the-glass wine selection gets raves for the way it enhances the food.

Crustacean

9646 Little Santa Monica Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90210 310-205-8990

Description: BEVERLY HILLS. Bon Appetit meets Town & Country at this trendy Euro-Asian seafood restaurant and bar. A two-level re-enactment of a Vietnamese dinner club, it's where beautiful people meet beautiful food. Dungeness crab with An's secret garlic sauce or sake-simmered crab will make you salivate on the spot. Garlic noodles are justifiably famous, and every Asian tapas is carefully prepared and presented. For dessert, try the Music Box or the special trio of sorbets ­ they're a perfect ending to a memorable meal. The trendier you look, the better your table.

Festive atmosphere, a playful waitstaff, and chic ambience lend appeal, and customers relish the mouthwatering Cuban-Asian fare. Fried calamari salad, a house specialty, makes culinary waves, and you can't go wrong with yucca-crusted mahi mahi or lime-and-garlic chicken. Desserts, naturally, make a splash on their own. An outdoor patio, glimmering with candles, affords incredible views ­ a nice change from the austere interior.
