THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sushi Roku Restaurant Review

: We tip our hat to Innovative Dining Group's Michael Cardenas (ex-Matsuhisa) and partners for creating a winning concept that ushered in a wave of contemporary Japanese restaurants, as well as multiple Sushi Roku locations across Los Angeles and as far away as Las Vegas and Scottsdale. This flagship outpost continues to excel with California-Asian fusion fare, and does so with an updated menu and interior. Allow chef Jiro Kobayashi and his team to dazzle you with a multi-course omakase menu, or compose your own dining experience with various tempura items, sushi, sashimi and specialty rolls. Signature dishes include albacore tacos “Roku-style” and Kobe meatballs in lettuce cups with mustard-soy-truffle sauce. From the sushi bar, you might indulge in a Kumamoto oyster topped with uni and caviar, or sushi simply but elegantly presented, brushed with premium soy sauce or dusted with sea salt. The original, somewhat dark setting now employs natural elements, such as walnut floors and a living wall on the outdoor patio, ready to host the Hollywood types and beautiful people that congregate here. The bar serves up some wild concoctions like a ginger lychee mojito, and there's a well-researched selection of sakés and a creative wine list. Desserts skew westward, with items like coconut panna cotta and molten chocolate cake.
