Gunsmoke review image




open table

There will never be such a thing as too many industry dinner spots in Hollywood. Feel free to add Gunsmoke to the rolodex. This upscale Japanese-American spot has all the necessary elements to put agents and their clients at ease: a semi-hidden location behind the Columbia Square complex, a shiny dining room with lots of privacy to close deals, and a very good house martini. But what sets Gunsmoke apart from the pack is the food. You’ll eat dishes like tuna sashimi topped with little flecks of dry-aged ham, warm cabbage salad, and a very spicy lamb sisig. Not everything is a success here—we wanted more flavor and heat from the crispy quail with Szechuan peppercorn—but overall, Gunsmoke’s menu is interesting and far outpaces the neighborhood competition.
