Shibumi Restaurant Review

: Chef David Schlosser (Urasawa, Ginza Sushiko) is behind Shibumi, a high-end Japanese restaurant in downtown L.A. on Hill Street, focusing on kappo and kaiseki cuisine. The kappo menu is served at a 400-year-old cypress counter, and a separate back room hosts a 10-course kaiseki tasting menu experience. Jacob Kear (Noma) joins Schlosser as chef de cuisine. The menu features heritage pork and beef, seafood, tofu and rice, and fermented vegetables.
