It’s important to have a relationship with your sushi guy in your town. Just as it is with a fishmonger..a butcher…or anyone feeding you really. For fishmongers…there’s very few in the US. Butchers…well butchers in NYC are awesome. Butchers in LA are weak. That said, KZO in LA is my favorite Sushi spot in LA.[…]
It’s very important to create a relationship with a few people: 1) your fishmonger 2) your butcher (real life, or online) 3) truffle dealer 4) wine dealer 5) your sushi restaurant. you get the best cuts. you’re served on time. that’s all. go drink.

unbelievable place to raise cows. go fly fishing. relax… and drink wine.
