6 Super Good Seafood Dishes in LA

We're almost halfway through spring, which means summer's right around the corner! Since a little light seafood is perfect for getting us all beach-season ready, we've rounded up a few of our favorite SoCal fish dishes. Here are 6 in LA that you'll get along with swimmingly:

1. OMAKASE SELECTION - SUSHI TSUJITA
