THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Geisha House Restaurant Review

: At the Dolce Group's Geisha House, the Hollywood club scene meets Tokyo's Ginza District to create a seriously hip venue, with some respectable Japanese cuisine at least a small part of the mix. The space hosts a lively 50-foot bar and saké lounge, a more sedate sushi bar and a bustling dining room draped with a huge photo mural of the Tokyo skyline backlit with neon. A towering red column stacked with fireplaces reaches skyward toward a mezzanine level and an upstairs bar with a retractable roof. A sommelier will help you choose a pricey bottle of saké (some nice sushi-friendly wines are also available) while you ponder a long list of traditional items and contemporary rolls. Cold starters include the uni shooter and kanpachi with yuzo-serrano dressing. There's also tempura --- lobster or miso-glazed rock shrimp --- with various sauces; robata-yaki (grilled skewers of meats, vegetables or seafood); and entrées such as grilled Kobe-style rib-eye steak, Alaskan king crab with yuzu-citrus butter, and miso-marinated black cod. Sushi purists may not appreciate Geisha House, but when one considers this is as much a club as restaurant, respect for the cuisine is justified. Western-style desserts like molten chocolate cake and coconut crème brûlée round out an experience a world apart from your serene neighborhood sushi bar.
