Weddings and Bar Mitzvahs aside, how many meals get planned over a year ahead of time?

Well, that's about how long LAist has been planning on going to have what is rumored to be the city's ultimate sushi experience at a tiny little place with a big price tag: Urasawa.

For months and months now we've been sampling sushi at various joints about town, getting a taste for what makes our taste buds sing or scream. Our palate has changed from blank and naive (fancy rolls, anyone?) to slightly more refined (omakase at some highly-regarded sushi bars), and recently we knew we were ready to take on the place that foodies and fanatics gush about. The threads on Urasawa on the Chowhound board alone are enough to point someone towards the place's barely-marked door. So we checked our bank account (the meal has one price: $250 per person) and made our reservation (they seat 10 people per night) and we were on our way.

It was an experience in dining we know we'll never be able to forget. Emphasis on experience.
