How do you single out a destination sushi restaurant when there are about a million options for upscale Japanese dining in LA? If you’re a design aficionado, it might help to know that Katsuya’s Hollywood branch is styled by Philippe Starck. If you only go to restaurants based on reviews, maybe you’d be interested to learn that Zagat awarded Katsuya top marks. If you’re an amateur paparazzo, keep your eyes open: Katsuya regularly attracts A-listers. And if food prepared with finesse is what you came for, give the menu a perusal and you’ll find dishes like signature spicy tuna over smoky, crispy rice. Sweet miso-marinated black cod, with a ribbon of crisped skin still attached. Warm, baked crab hand rolls wrapped in thin soy paper. And best of all, Chef Katsuya Uechi’s Omakase menu, which is perfectly suited for those seeking a no-holds-barred night out.
