Mori Nozomi


Time Out says

A sense of restrained elegance threads itself throughout each meal at Mori Nozomi, the newest omakase experience to occupy the former Mori Sushi space. Three nights a week, Ginza Onodera alumna Nozomi Mori serves an exquisite omakase ($250) with a touch of Osaka-style flair and elements of traditional Japanese tea ceremony. The all-female team—a rarity in the predominantly male world of sushi—has crafted a standout high-end sushi experience complete with minimalist floral arrangements, an optional artisan tea pairing ($50) and Mori’s delicate one-of-a-kind wagashi at the end of every meal. Bites like thinly sliced penshell clam wrapped in nori and tamago soaked in hot dashi broth have already distinguished Mori Nozomi in L.A.'s crowded omakase scene, but what really sets the restaurant apart is the grace and beauty of ceremonial tea-serving on display every night of service.
