As I turned into an underground parking structure and left my keys with a valet, the sexy Katana experience begins at the elevator. Riding up to the restaurant, the door opened, and I was greeted by three attractive hostesses dressed in black. I made a mental note; one must be beautiful to be hired at Katana. Looking good in a black mini skirt helps too.
My group was seated on the front patio facing the energetic Sunset Blvd.
The restaurant is located in a beautiful 1920s building that shares space with Miramax Films. Originally built as an apartment building for the entertainment elite, you never know who you might see while sitting in comfortable chairs next to heaters and flaming tiki torches.
The restaurant is dark and cozy allowing guests to snuggle up while sharing sushi and sake together.
Katana is different than most Japanese restaurants with its open robata grill. A robata is an ancient style of Japanese cooking with skewers.
