Katsuya represents the prodigious pairing of the supreme talents of master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi and world-renowned designer Philippe Starck. The Sushi Bar is where celebrated chef Katsuya Uechi practices his trade of creating sushi masterpieces, using the freshest ingredients to create a dizzying array of custom rolls and spectacular sushi and sashimi platters. The Katsuya “Liquid Kitchen” creates some of California’s most intriguing and sought-after cocktails.
The recipient of Travel & Leisure’s 2008 award for Best-Design restaurant, Katsuya’s second outpost, at the corner of Hollywood and Vine, features the dynamic pairing of master sushi chef Katsuya Uechi and world-renowned designer Philippe Starck. A slight departure from its flagship Brentwood location, the décor at this locale is a bit more provocative- a reflection of its Hollywood environs. Katsuya Hollywood’s main dining room is anchored by a large Sushi Beat flanked by individual seats as well as two and four-person tables that can be served directly from the sushi chefs. Double-height ceilings create an airy, open space with four large black Noren curtains featuring the kanji symbol for Katsuya hanging from the ceiling above. Patrons can chose from multiple seating areas, either in the main dining room by the Susi Bar, or the more exclusive Dragon Lounge.
