There are a handful of chain restaurants that I like. Katsuya is one of them. The few times I've been to the Downtown L.A. location have been at the request of friends during different dineLA weeks.
As obnoxious as it is, I kind of dig the over-the-top modern geisha decor.
For $34, you get a ton of food.
Needless to say, this is definitely one of the more filling dineLA deals. The fruity cocktails here are fabulous, too. Good for a girls' night out!
yum yum! i love katsuya, but i prefer the original pre-starck/SBE location in studio city best. less scene, yet i see many more celebs here. same incredible food. :)ReplyDelete
good to know! i've been wondering about katsuya. when i saw these pics on twitter i was like - how do you order EVERYthing?!ReplyDelete
Tell me you saw Heidi Montag? She's the reason why Katsuya is even on my radar. Sad!ReplyDelete
I really like the Katusu-ya in the Valley and the Izaka-ya on Third Street. I'm happy as a clam when I'm noshing on one of their hand crab rolls, spicy tuna on crispy rice, albacore with crispy onions...ReplyDelete
Gah! Now I'm hungry.
still haven't been! dude, what's up with that?! btw, LOVE your pictures. you always have a good shot.ReplyDelete
lol at Gastronomer - I saw Heidi and Spencer at the Brentwood one a long time ago. He was on the phone the entire evening and Heidi was just sitting there. This was before he had blossomed into full douche. He was just a demi-douche back then.ReplyDelete
i'm really surprised that you like katsuya. of course, maybe it's because of the dine l.a. deals - because on any given day, it's super duper overpriced.ReplyDelete
Hmmm, will have to reconsider then. Maybe we'll try to go during this upcoming Dine LA.ReplyDelete
