I was first introduced to Katsuya in Studio City perched inside of a strip mall 6 or 7 years ago. It was love at first bite! From that point on, every trip to LA included a meal at Katsuya. I still go to the original Katsuya in Studio City but usually hit up the one in Hollywood.
The super trendy hipster resto is filled with energy. I love the vibe, decor, food, and cocktails. Katsuya offers a wide selection of sushi, cooked food, and specialty dishes. Most of which is pretty on point.
MY CHOW FAVES:
Michael White is at it again. His new restaurant Ai Fiori, in the Setai Hotel is open! Ai Fiori is inspired by the French Riviera and Mediterranean Coast. I went there for lunch earlier this week, and the 2nd floor resto was adorned with modern art and flowers. There’s an elegant silence to the dining room. Ai Fiori is classy with excellent food and service.
Lunch was wonderful….I’ll definitely go back for dinner. Now for my CHOW FAVES:
I GOT THE SCOOP FROM DAWN RICHARD (DIDDY-DIRTY MONEY) BEFORE THEIR DOPE PERFORMANCE ON SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE. DAWN WAS EXCITED FOR THE PERFORMANCE AND THE RELEASE OF THEIR DEBUT ALBUM “LAST TRAIN TO PARIS”. SO WITH ALL THIS EXCITEMENT, I WANTED TO KNOW WHAT DAWN’S FAVORITE RESTAURANT IS TO CELEBRATE, AMONG OTHER QUESTIONS. CHECK OUT MY EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW.
