- The Scene
Katsu-ya is always packed with its loyal following, but it's unquestionably worth the wait. The good-looking Valley crowd doesn't even mind putting up with Hollywood types gossiping about scripts and head shots--as long as they still get to swoon over the amazing sushi.
Besides doling out top-rate slivers of fish, Sushi Katsu-ya is also known for its inventive specials. The spicy tuna plate looks like royal pop art, with slices of ruby and slivers of jade. The albacore sashimi plate tastes like a dream, especially when you rudely awaken to find you've eaten it all. Non-sushi dishes are also top rate. Tempura is delicate and crisp, and Japanese ceviche is a taste bud-awakening medley of fish in a citrus marinade.
