LA's original robatayaki restaurant is still one of the best, in terms of both selection and execution. Diners line up for a wide variety of meats and vegetables, grilled with subtle Japanese seasonings and served with beer, saké or wine. Large parties should steer clear on the busier nights; the seating policy means that you may never get a table, while smaller groups are seated ahead of you.
