    Sawtelle and National. They will literally (appropriate use of this word) murder you if you use your phone. I saw it once (well, the prelude to what I assume was a back alley murder after the dude was tossed out). The sushi is so good that their intensity and sort of slow service (one of the waiters is the chef's son who does not give one fuck and it's maddening/hilarious) is totally worth it I promise.
