Those looking to feast on something new this November should make a few stops around Los Angeles, as 21 local restaurants will be taking part in Hungry for Tokyo Restaurant Month. Home to more Michelin star restaurants than any other city in the world, Tokyo is known for its culinary masterpieces and one-of-a-kind menus. And to highlight the city this fall, restaurants in both New York and Los Angeles will be hosting specialized menus in honor of washoku, or traditional Japanese dishes. During the month of November you can treat yourself to a taste of Tokyo with specialty-themed cuisine including sushi, Wagyu beef, kanpachi, ramen and chirashi.
Some of LA’s biggest Japanese restaurants are taking part in the event including Katsu-Ya, Manpuku, U-Zen and popular celebrity hangout, Sushi Roku. Each will feature its own specialty menu that highlights their culinary expertise and will offer dishes such as the Uni Scallop Tiradito served at Picca, Shabu Suki with Japanese A5 Wagyu Beef from Kagoshima at Shunji restaurant, K-ZO Vegetable Tokyo Tower with layered smoked vegetable with special beets dressing at K-ZO, and a Crispy Tuna Rice at Katsu-ya.
