There is so much to like about the new Sake Sushi Bar Lounge in Montrose, it’s hard to know where to begin. What jumps out first and foremost is the super-friendly attitude of the place. The employees are funny and young, and they aim to please. The look is very cool, like you stepped into a bistro in Santa Monica. And the sushi rolls are creative, tasty and quite a bargain. Eating out is so much more than taking in food. People want a complete experience, an adventure, if you will.

The end of the calendar year is traditionally a time of reflection when many La Cañadans gather together to take down the decorations, drink a gin fizz or two and bake lasagna for the float builders. In the spirit of year-end contemplation, the following is my annual top ten list of Southern California?s greatest places, in and around the 91011. 1 ) Shop at the Apple Cart.

The question is, where did all the people come from and how did they know?

Recently, I accepted an invitation to attend a media tasting dinner at Sushi Roku. Normally I dine on my own dime at local eateries because I don't want to feel obligated to comment on the experience in my column. My daughters are enthusiastic Sushi Roku patrons, so we took our houseguest, Rui Kanai, who was a waiter in his native Japan, to the Pasadena restaurant. Rui gave Sushi Roku high marks. I feel his opinion of a Japanese restaurant trumps mine, so I could safely enjoy myself with no worries.

Lynn Duvall As a young woman I studied in Japan and have spent subsequent years continuing my exploration of the food, art and culture of Japan. I admire the rigorous training sushi chefs undergo to master their knife skills. For many years, they hone their art, preparing aesthetically pleasing arrangements of raw fish and rice. For me, a sushi purist, it is difficult to accept less than excellence. My visits to sushi bars, where Korean chefs prepare traditional Japanese sushi, have been disappointing.

Artist Vicki Thomas has been showing her watercolor works at Descanso for 13 years. This month she's adding another La Cañada Flintridge location — a sushi restaurant — to her list. When a friend of hers told Thomas about La Cañada restaurant Toku Sushi, he said that the food was exciting but the walls bland. When Thomas visited the Japanese restaurant, she discovered that her friend was right and sat down with owners Julia and Olivia Noh to see how she could remedy the situation.
