What To Eat at Agura, Grand Open Saturday

Agura’s Dining Room

West Hollywood has a lavish new sushi and Japanese fusion palace called Agura, grand opening this Saturday on LaCienega just south of Melrose. The restaurant offers a wide choice of authentic eats from The Land of the Rising Sun, with just as many options for the carefree roll eater. Agura is all about their sushi, and has Nobu taking charge of a massive list of traditional nigiri and twisted rolls. That’s Nobu Shishido of course, who did you think we were talking about? If raw fish isn’t your bag, Agura has Japanese pastas like a beef sukiyaki with shitake, noodles, and scrambled eggs, as well as entrees like curried Colorado lamb and foie gras with a daikon steak. Seafood is where it flourishes though. Clever additions of unagi pie, gruyere crab crepes, and a deep fried lobster tail with gin infused mayo can be washed down with everything from sake to house cocktails with tequila and muddled berries. Agura’s full menu is below; (310) 289-1940.
