Gozen Japanese Sake Bistro
Where we've featured it
Sure, you haven’t met in person and have only kissed through a smudged screen, but you both know it - you’re in love. Time to celebrate. While there are tons of great options for big nights out right now, you’re in the market for something personal. Go to Gozen. A meal at this high-end kaiseki spot in West Hollywood will certainly set you back (prix-fixe menus range from $80-260 per person), but if you’re good with that price point, Gozen completely delivers on its value. You’ll eat things like smoked duck with tapenade, sushi that was flown that day from Japan, and strips of Kobe beef prime chuck cooked tableside. The intimate space also only has a handful of tables to go around, making the entire experience feel like you’re dining in your own private teahouse even though you’re at a restaurant on La Cienega.
There’s a new kaiseki restaurant in town. Opening this Wednesday, March 31st, Gozen Japanese Bistro and Sake Bar in West Hollywood will be serving three special prix-fixe menus, ranging from $80-$240. The most premium set, the Yume course, comes with smoked duck, assorted sashimi, steamed egg custard, Wagyu katsu sandwiches, and more. Reservations can be made here.
