    Has he already opened?
    From the website:

    In 2007, Noz moved to New York with the dream of opening his own restaurant and bringing his unique style of cooking to an American audience. After three years at the helm of New York's legendary Sushiden, Noz opened his namesake restaurant, Sushi Noz. He welcomes you to enjoy the aromas, sensibilities, aesthetics, and tastes of his life's work.

    Hey Richard_

    Regret they seem to be open for Take Out "but" when you follow the link nothing is available

    Oh well one can only hope this pandemic thing finally passes so quality establishments like Sushi Noz can flourish - I'll let you know Richard!

    Hope you and family are well!

    Maybe I misunderstood - they opened years ago, but you're waiting for it to reopen?!

    PS See you at the beach!

    Just order a Tuna, Ikura, Uni Don. Drive in, pick it up, and go have a nice lunch with a beer on the beach.

    there are a lot of places in LA that are equally good or better, I would wager. For Japanese food and culture in the US, LA is ground zero.

    Also, of those sushi, or "sushi" restaurants, a mix of those who are definitely tradition and respect...but also those who are brash and throw tradition to the wind. A professor friend of mine who immigrated from China to a university in the US put it that way, "that is why Asia was stagnant for 1000 years, while America is the most powerful country on earth"....may not explain everything but it is a thought.

    Watching through the Jiro documentary, in his youth, it claimed he was a brash innovator that defied tradition and brought about "sushi dishes never seen before", so there is a yin and yang to everything, so to speak...

    I'm not a fan of sushi, but I enjoyed the video and the takeaway message.

    Thanks.

    This morning I sat down with a cup of coffee, saw this thread, and watched the video above. I really enjoyed it and spent much of the day thinking of sashimi and nigiri. I thought of how much I love watching sushi knife technique employed, how there is so much knowledge and experience behind every move, and how I haven't tried making sushi rice since that house party in culinary school where my roommate and I spent so much of our Derby weekend tips on expensive fish to treat ourselves and our friends.

    Then, around 6p tonight I looked out my front door window to check for any late arriving packages and I shit you not, this was on my porch. I turned 40 on Wednesday and my Australian brother-from-another-mother, the same one I shared that house with nearly 20 years ago, thinks way too much of me. I mean damn...

    Wow, that was beautiful. Makes me think about visiting Japan sometime.

    Food looks utterly amazing. Like a work of edible art. Have to say though, I am such a sushi neophyte that I would feel embarrassed trying to eat there. I would feel too self-conscious about doing something wrong or disrespectful. And I need chopstick lessons!

    It's an acquired skill - and one that will come in time!

    pretty much the correct way to hold. It's about the base.

    In the old days when I was young, we were not suppose to let any rice grains remain in our rice bowl. So we picked the last ones out one by one with the chopsticks and ate. You get pretty good with chopsticks doing that.

    Being able to handle soft tofu with chopsticks is a real art.


    My wife thinks Japanese style chopsticks are easier to use than the metal ones many Chinese restaurants use.

    That is actually a good, instructive video. Thanks. I'll watch it a few times. First time I only had some pens and pencils nearby to use. Too short. Or I'm not coordinated.
    I probably couldn't learn to knit either.

    I'm not sure which Chinese restaurants you're going to, but the ones I've been in have typically had plastic chopsticks. The one time I had metal chopsticks was in a Korean restaurant. Because my chopstick waza is poor (yes, I realize waza is a Japanese word), I really didn't get along with those!!

    Yes, definitely metal chopsticks at Korean Barbecue, but I seem to remember metal chopsticks at A. Wong in London which is were I eat Dim Sum. It is awesome.
    Dumplings- Joe's Shanghai in Flushing or Bowery in NYC. (Only get takeout now)

    I've been to sushi restaurants that are pretty traditional and I've been to sushi restaurants that aren't. The food's great in both, but in different ways

    I like sushi regardless.
