SANTA MONICA (CBS) — For an authentic Japanese experience without the pricey plane ticket, take a trip to Ozumo in Santa Monica.
This Japanese hotspot maybe a Bay Area transplant but its Southern California cool. With its warm and inviting atmosphere, it’s a perfect place for sake and wine.
The food is simple and clean. Mouth-watering sushi and sashimi. And try out the robata grill..these hot coals grill veggies and meats to perfection.
Ozumo means “big sumo” in Japanese, but you wont be paying big prices. Guest are encouraged to share and try several items. Ozumo is part of the dining deck at the new Santa Monica Place.
