THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Zen Grill & Sake Lounge Restaurant Review

: Restaurateur Adolfo Suaya (Gaucho Grill, Dolce, Deluxe), with partners Elaine Johnson and Ryu Hamada from Zen Grill (located on Third Street and in Beverly Hills), is behind this high-end Asian-Fusion restaurant and lounge. Interior designer Dodd Mitchell transformed a vast rectangular space into a dramatic---yet cozy---one, dividing the main dining room and bar with drapes falling from the ceiling, reminding one of the Japanese flag, and adding a grand red velvet staircase leading to another bar and a communal table. You will enjoy the relaxing atmosphere under the honeycombed ceiling, sipping sakés selected from among the sixty different choices, or experiencing Hamada's cuisine. In the large selection of fish appetizers, we like the spicy tuna Vietnamese spring roll, the salmon tartare or the Zen's signature tuna rice tower sushi. The chicken pot stickers are also a light way to start your meal. Rice and noodles are there to accompany your entrées. We particularly liked the Chilean sea bass in a light and elegant caramelized sauce and the stir-fried lamb. To expand your stay (at that point, you will not want to leave), choose the coconut crème brûlée.
