Hg2 : The Hedonist

Hinoki & The Bird

The new project by Michelin-starred LA kingpin David Myers (the man behind Sona, Comme Ça, and Pizzeria Ortica) and Japanese Executive Chef Kuniko Yagi, Hinoki & The Bird has been subject to huge hype and rapturous praise since its early 2013 opening. Now the favourite of stars like Robert Downey Jr., the restaurant, which boasts a studiously ornate interior and too-cool-for-school waiters who rock converse and chambray shirts, brings together fresh California cuisine with the delicacy and balance of Japanese cooking. Look for dishes like pumpkin toast with miso jam and goat’s cheese, a green curry lobster roll filled with juicy chunks of crustacean meat, and black cod, which comes “scented” by a kindling shaving of Hinoki wood. We’d recommend making a reservation well in advance to get a table at this white-hot spot, but rest assured that when you do, the gracious managers and best eats in LA will have you feeling supremely well attended to.
