5. Sushi Rock

This little gem of a local sushi place may not have the big bar scene or the glammed-up crowds like the rest of the boulevard, but what it lacks in aesthetics it makes up for in substance. We dare you to try to get a table at prime time in less than an hour on any Thursday, Friday, or Saturday night. The place is booming. Local sushi lovers pack themselves in like sardines to get some of this little spot's rock-inspired roll combinations, like the $9 Yellow Submarine, a combination of Pacific yellowtail, scallions, asparagus, and roe, or the Madonna: eel, avocado, asparagus, and roe drizzled with blond crepe and eel sauces. Fresh fish, crazy roll combinations, and a hard-core local following keep this place packed. And when it comes to sushi, that's exactly what you should be looking for: no day-old fish sitting around this spot.
