Sushi Sasabune

Every so often, you realize that Boss is actually paying attention. My good work (hard labor) paid off in the form of a two-person Omakase gift card at the most recent Sasabune location on Wilshire. Boss was feeling thoughtful on my birthday and I reaped the rewards. He drew his inspiration from one of our clients - a sushi connoisseur - who makes it a point to visit Sasabune for the Omakase menu every time he travels West. According to the client, Sasabune is the best sushi in the city - "it makes SugarFish look like McDonalds."

Prepare yourself - this statement may cause an uproar, but convince Boss to consider your lofty claim. Cite the fact that Nobi Kusuhara, the proprietor of Sushi Sasabune, was trained by Master Sushi Chef Nozawa of SugarFish. Then, to really drive your point home, quote Mr. Miyagi in Karate Kid: "Teacher say, student do."

It'll go something like this: Boss will feel adulterous sitting in the plain, line-less, unassuming space on Wilshire, among the cult-like Sasabune devotees. Boss may then consider SugarFish - wonderfully warm and accessible sushi - and conclude that it's really good, easy sushi for the masses. Boss will then realize that this is the spot for hot-shots and the next thing you know, you'll overhear things like, "You think that's good? I'm gonna take you to Sasabune."
