The handroll-only Sugarfish spinoff has come to Santa Monica. KazuNori is best approached in the same way as the mothership - go for one of the set menus (we usually get the five roll menu), and wait as they bring out yellowtail, lobster, and salmon handrolls one at a time. Lines are less extreme than at Sugarfish, meaning you can be in and out for a quality sushi meal in under half an hour.
