Nestled in the heart of Studio City, California, ‘best kept secret’ Yume Sushi Bar serves up its modern take on traditional Japanese fare, ‘Yume’ (pronounced ‘you-meh’), which means ‘dream’ in Japanese, transports guests to a sensory experience they won’t soon wish to end.
Well-known around the food circuit for its use of exceptionally fresh, premium-grade ingredients, the bright, wood-paneled restaurant delivers on its promise. Yume’s skillful chefs wow guests with a menu featuring innovative dishes from exquisite sushi rolls, sashimi specials, and tempura to crispy rice and kushiyaki, among other signature offerings.
The restaurant also provides guests the opportunity to experience a global sake menu, not to mention other luxurious curations. The Yume Box, which is a steal, comes with the namesake Yume Roll (spicy tuna and mushrooms, topped with avocado and tuna), truffle edamame, four pieces of sushi (chef’s choice), truffle avocado toast, and finally, the garlic albacore roll.
With something for everyone, Yume is the perfect spot for both casual dining and special occasions. Reservations are highly encouraged. Not a seafood fan? The restaurant offers a delicious array of seafood-free items including corn tempura, Tsukune Chicken meatball skewers, and the vegan roll, all of which will send your taste buds soaring just as high as anything else on the menu.
Yume is located at 12254 Ventura Boulevard, just blocks from Laurel Canyon, in Studio City, California. Indoor and outdoor seating is available. Be sure to snag a reservation and treat yourself to some truly divine, modern, and authentic Japanese cuisine.
