THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Weiland Brewery Restaurant Restaurant Review

: On an unexpectedly busy corner across the street from the Japanese National Museum sits this self-proclaimed American bistro in Little Tokyo. It’s a casual, boisterous place where the beer and cocktails flow freely (there are two different happy hours each night) and where loft residents join high-rise office workers waiting out the traffic for some tasty and reasonably priced American fare. Burgers---beef, turkey, buffalo or veggie---are offered with toppings ranging from Kahlúa barbecue sauce to wasabi mayo to cayenne pepper sauce, and starters like crispy calamari, wings, and corn tortilla “crab cakes” with red pepper aïoli pair well with cocktails. Larger plates include Cajun-style filet mignon, fish ‘n’ chips, seared ahi and pastas.
