TAO, Los Angeles, CA

TAO Restaurant Review

: TAO Group has opened a Los Angeles location of its signature Asian bistro, which also has branches in New York and Las Vegas. A 20-foot-tall Quan Yin statue takes center stage, animated with 3D projections. Three hundred seats surround a sushi bar island, flanked by a long, sexy bar. Chef/partner Ralph Scamardella presents items such as miso-glazed Chilean sea bass, Szechuan crispy duck and Wagyu rib-eye teppanyaki. Choose from a wide selection of noodles and rice, yakitori, sushi and sashimi, dim sum, and small plates ranging from tuna poke to agedashi tofu. Expect luxe cocktails with cold pressed juices and some Asian-leaning flavors of lychee and ginger, as well as wine, beer and saké.
