Hayato - ROW DTLA

I parked in the structure for 2:15 the other night for dinner. I paid $10 for parking for :15. We had a long lingering dinner. I’m still curious about the street parking. Maybe I’ll get lucky for a Hayato visit in the summer when the menu changes over.


bianco didn’t validate the last time I was there.

Are musk melons in season year round now? 'Cuz that’d be a great achievement for mankind if that was the case.

they’re grown indoors inside a gated community with 24 hour security so yes.


Michelin worthy Hoshigaki/Gotgamssam ?


this looks fire - didn’t have it last week.


all these expensive japanese fruits are grown in greenhouses so shouldn’t have much seasonaility. Hell they are releasing mangos in the winter lol.

Can sturgeon be farmed indoors too?

Simply the finest restaurant in LA. Are there any kaiseki restaurants in the world this good outside of Japan? The only possibility I know about is Tenku Ryugin in Hong Kong (haven’t been).

did it replace the hokkigai?

They closed 2 to 3 years ago and weren’t traditional kaiseki either.


don’t see why not. A lot of the CA farms start and finish their sturgeon indoors. It’s mostly a cost issue of having to building an maintain that large of a building. It’s not necessary, don’t think they grow better indoors opposed to outdoors. It doesn’t change when they spawn roe though.
