A decade ago, the heading to Garey Street–a warehouse-packed, somewhat desolate stretch in DTLA–for dinner wouldn’t have even been an option. Now it’s a go-to, thanks, in part, to nearby Hauser & Wirth gallery, Wurstküche, and most recently this chic robatayaki restaurant. The space is modern through and through, with custom oak furniture complemented by handmade glazed tiles and tons of greenery. The layout is anchored by a huge central grill, which also has some of the best seats in house (you can watch the chefs flame-grill your prawns). With your drink order taken care of by a can’t-go-wrong list of Japanese beers and sake, you can turn all your focus to the food menu. Anything you order will be great, but don’t miss the salmon fillet with grapefruit and romaine with spicy cashew miso. This is a good option for celebrating with a large group.
