B Lovd: Katana - Robata & Sushi Bar (L.A.)

8439 W Sunset Blvd
West Hollywood, CA
(323) 650-8585

It's time for the West Coast to get a little more loving, and I have a lot to give. Katana gets an easy A+ on food, service, ambiance, and proximity to anywhere you would want to be in West Hollywood on a Friday night.

This Japanese Robata and Sushi Bar offers small plates for the diner who wants to keep it light with sashimi or a few rolls, but it also caters to someone who wants something a little heartier. (Robata is a method of cooking on a Bincho charcoal grill, which apparently leads to perfectly seared meats - love!) I recommend the Rock Shrimp Tempura, and the Short Ribs.

This is L.A., so Katana did not disappoint when it comes to the "pretty people". The crowd was good-looking, in-shape, and the model/actresses were definitely in effect at the hostess stand. And of course, a celeb and ball player or two were in the house.

The icing on the Molten Chocolate Cake our superb server comped for us, was the view. Katana has a sizable open dining terrace with a view of Sunset Blvd. and the comings and goings at the Mondrian across the street. So charming. So L.A.
