One of the best sushi restaurants in Los Angeles is Katsuya and I had not yet been to their newest location at L.A. Live so we made reservations there before the Ellie Goulding concert. I gave up sushi years ago but Katsuya offers cooked dishes as well as raw, along with great salads so I can always find something on the menu. The interior of the restaurant is striking and the food is so flavorful. The fried brussels sprouts are a must. If you are looking for a nice restaurant prior to a Staples Center event, make reservations at Katsuya LA Live.
