Japan House Los Angeles, a Japanese cultural destination in Hollywood, is reopening its 35-seat restaurant space with the A5 Wagyu Experience, the first in a series of educational, limited-time culinary experiences.
Debuting on Wednesday, Feb. 23, the dinner series will allow guests to dive into the intricacies of Japanese wagyu beef, including its farming practices and lesser-known cuts. Reservations are available by visiting japanhousela.com.
The five-course dinners, taking place on Wednesday evenings from February through April, will showcase Japanese A5 wagyu in a side-by-side comparison with American wagyu. Throughout the series, Japan House will host guest chefs utilizing a range of wagyu preparations from raw to grilled, each highlighting the best qualities of Japanese wagyu. Menus will change based on seasonal ingredients. The menu for the first A5 Wagyu Experience features gyu-tataki (side-by-side comparison of lightly seared Japanese A5 wagyu and American wagyu beef); shishito pepper salad; wagyu shabu shabu (thinly sliced cuts of Miyazaki A5 wagyu and American wagyu beef in a hot pot); zosui (Japanese rice soup); and a seasonal dessert.
The cost is $125 per person, inclusive of tax and service charge. Premium sake or Japanese whiskey pairings are available for an additional $50. Reservations must be booked online in advance via Tock.
Japan House Los Angeles is located at 6801 Hollywood Blvd. For information, visit japanhousela.com.
