Sushi Stop Under Construction on Sawtelle

A new spot called Sushi Stop is coming to Sawtelle, sometimes referred to as “Little Osaka” for its profusion of Japanese eateries and stores. The restaurant, across from Giant Robot’s Great Eats and karaoke spot Fui Rai Bo, plans to open in about a month, serving sushi and rolls, along with house dishes in a casual environment. So far, the easily digestible name and the low expectations of a Craigslist search for someone who can “prepare fish and serve appetizing sushi…in a fast-paced environment” suggest something closer to Hide than Sasabune, but West L.A. will find out the full details as September draws closer.
