Are you in search for something fabulous to do to impress your out-of-town guests? Then why not take them to the heart of Los Angeles for a sensory overload experience that can only happen at L.A. Live!
While many of you are certainly familiar with the 11 year old SBE Katsuya brand, dining at the L.A. Live location in Downtown Los Angeles adds another layer to the restaurant with menu items that pay tribute to the city where it was founded.
What are you Drinking?
Begin your meal with a few specialty cocktails from their list of more than 13! Seasonal specials right now also include three additional specialty drinks like The Kings Ice inspired by L.A.’s own hockey team, and the Lob City (also a sports reference that went over my head) made with tequila, sake, grenadine, and served with cranberry stuffed lychee nuts.
What are you Eating?
I encourage you to think like the Lakers and “ball out” on the Katsuya Tasting Menu. It’s a 5-course tasting menu that offers the best of the best signature dishes created by Chef Katsuya for $75.
The meal begins with the Katsuya Ceviche, a light and refreshing blend of sashimi and truffle ponzu citrus.
Starter Sampler Platter
Generously large portions featuring some of Katsuya’s most famous dishes like the Crispy Rice with Spicy Tuna, Albacore Sashimi with Crispy Onion, Yellowtail Sashimi with Jalapeño, and their Creamy Rock Shrimp.
From the Sushi Kitchen
A selection of fresh sushi standards like Tuna, Salmon, Sweet Shrimp, and a warm Crab Hand Roll.
From the Hot Kitchen
The Miso Marinated Black Cod which delivers a decadent combination of buttery cod and sweet miso sauce.
Finish it all off with the Pan Don Creme Brûlée topped with fresh berries. Perfect for splitting but for better or worse everyone gets their own.
Luckily you’re in the perfect location to walk it off!
