Tao Hollywood

$$$$ (323) 593-7888

Even if you’ve never stepped foot in a clubstaurant in your life, chances are you’ve heard of Tao. The massive Asian-themed restaurant conglomerate has locations in NYC, Vegas, Chicago, and even central Connecticut, making its Hollywood opening in 2017 fairly inevitable. A night here is a totally serviceable experience, and if you’re looking for an epic Vegas-level restaurant space in LA, Tao delivers. But you’ll also eat food that’s slightly worse than you’d find at PF Chang’s, drink fruity cocktails with little to no alcohol in them, and stare out at a sea of diners who all have Starline bus tours booked for tomorrow. If none of that sounds appealing, please feel free to skip this place.
