Arts District710 S Santa Fe Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90021

Situated inside a converted Arts District firehouse, this Japanese-American bistro from Kensho group boasts an austere indoor-outdoor dining room blending slate, steel, and poured concrete with natural linen and blond wood accents. The design-forward space is at once pared back and inviting, with a seasonal menu offering sushi, live fire binchotan grilling, cocktails, and pastry, in addition to a truncated selection of small plates, coffee and tea, wine, and sake at the cafe in the front. A raw private room, described as a “flex space between art and dining,” is centered on a monolithic live edge pine table with benches that seat up to twenty guests.
