1. Urasawa, Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.
There is a reason why dinner for 2 at Urasawa in Los Angeles will set you back about $1,000 (with tip and tax)—it’s that darn good! This sushi bar offers limited room at 10 diners per sitting, and the dining experience is as much a culinary one as it is a theatrical event. Chef and owner, Hiroyuki Urasawa, might just choose the evening as the perfect time to unveil fresh tuna on a custom-carved ice pedestal!
