Shima – Brown Rice Sushi

It’s Abbot Kinney Restaurant Week on YoVenice…

Driving by 1432 Abbot Kinney Blvd, you might think this is just another work/live space for some of our many artists, photographers, architects, designers, etc. A little 8.5×11 paper “sign” tells you otherwise.

Shima • Abbott Kinney Blvd. Venice Beach California

This subtlety is part of its charm – entering through the gate, past the tiny river rock garden, you feel as if you are being let in on a little secret. Once you experience the sushi – you definitely want to keep this secret to yourself!

“Exclusive Brown Rice Sushi” simply doesn’t do Shima justice. My only experience there has been as a vegetarian, but every person I’ve dined with has raved about the sushi. When black cod is on the menu, it’s always a favorite. I’ve thought of asking them to call me when they are serving their heirloom tomato salad – it’s that good (but not always on the menu). Their regular menu features several tofu dishes, grilled fish and meat, vegetables, salads – and another of my favorites: the tofu scramble.

They have an excellent selection of sake and organic wines and juices.

The staff is very nice. The decor is simple and fresh. They have a loft area for larger dinner parties, since the main floor has small tables.
Reservations are always a good idea.
