Kato@Downtown LA ★

Michelin Taiwanese 10-Course Tasting Dinner. At The Row Downtown LA. Always wanted to try since their Sawtelle location. Nice but overpriced. Wagyu Beef was amazing. Great cocktails. Dinner took 3.5 hours. Received an Egg Custard Tart to take home at the end of the meal. $225 per person. Wagyu Beef is an additional $45, and everyone in the party has to do the same if ordering. $125 for wine flight, and it's worth it. Also has vintage flight for $175. Corkage fee is $75.

Q Sushi@Downtown ★★★

Exquisite Japanese Fine Dining at Downtown LA. Great service. Superb quality of fish. Highly recommended. It's pricey, but it's for the quality you get. Omakase only, and it's $165 pp & up. Too bad no candles or dessert for my birthday. They don't have dessert. Free metered parking after 8pm.
