film shoot (Complete): SUNDAY JULY 14, 2019. 6PM - 9PM.



As you may know Nagao will soon be leaving LA to start a new chapter of his life in Japan. And while many of us have known for years the pleasure of dining at Nagao, most don’t know the important and historic role he has played in LA’s Global Sushi Revolution.

To honor his legacy, a dedicated group of long-time Nagao fans (who happen to be documentary filmmakers) will be telling this story.

Please join us on Sunday, July 14 as on this day we’ll be filming Nagao with his loyal customers, friends, and followers. The restaurant will be open as usual and this is your opportunity to tell us what he means to you, on camera - so he can remember us and we can remember him.


NAGAO’s upcoming retirement and closure


Thank You for 21 Years.

After decades of service, Nagao, the owner-chef, has announced his upcoming retirement and closure of this restaurant.

Over the past 21 years, it has been an honor for us all to share our passion for sushi with you and the many patrons that have come through our doors.

As we near closure, we hope to share our work with you all one last time.

We will continue normal business hours. We require additional time to coordinate logistics and will announce the official date of closure at a later time.

Thank you for all the heartfelt memories and support.
