LA Weekly's Description

There are so many things at David Myers' new Century City restaurant I'd classify as must-try dishes, enough that you'll have to return a few times in order to eat them all: the mussels in green curry, covered with shaved cauliflower so its vegetal tang permeates the whole dish and punctuated with crumbled sausage and fistfuls of cilantro, dill and basil; the light citrus tang of the lobster roll, the roll made black as soot with charcoal, the freshness of the lobster set against its sweet grit; the simple pleasure of the roasted yam, as sweet and decadent as dessert. Texture is king on this menu. The chefs' attention to the sense of touch is clear in the melting softness of that black cod, in the silken beef tartare, in the wetness of the chili crab toast matched with the snap of cucumber underneath. ¬óBesha Rodell

    Housed in an upscale 42-storey tower. The menu is inspired by the Silk Road, try the grilled drunken duck breast and hinoki-scented black cod served with a piece of the namesake hinoki cypress wood.

  • Los Angeles Times on 06/06/13

    A fusion of complex, ritualized Japanese kaiseki cuisine with modern California small-plates cooking, like the black cod served under smoldering sheets of the Japanese cedar hinoki.

    My favorite meal of 2013! Every dish was amazing especially the crab cakes and cocktails.

    They aren't kidding about that cod
