Overview

Sushi (nigiri, sashimi, maki) and creative takes on Japanese fare -- like green tea soba salad, sake-broth steamed clams or seared kobe beef tataki -- are the standard at K-Zo, an elegant Culver City gem helmed by chef Keizo Ishiba. The bar pours a selection of Japanese beers, sake and shochu to compliment innovative dishes. A decor of polished concrete floors and soft lighting further instill the Zen-like vibe.
