The Philippe Starck design of this packed new west-side restaurant can seem overwhelming at first; between the white leather couches, the shelves of gold-painted water pistols, and the giant photo close-ups of a woman's face (here a huge set of lips, there a mural-sized eyebrow), you might be distracted enough to forget about food. Still, once you've acclimatized, you'll find chef Katsuya Uechi's menu as dependably good as the one at his original, still-popular Studio City restaurant, Katsuya. The cuisine here is definitely the California version of Japanese; the sushi bar serves up choices like yellowtail sashimi with jalapeño, and the entrées include garlic-rubbed seared tuna with baby spinach salad. The kitchen's coal-fired robata grill turns out meat dishes—steak, duck breast—that are seared and crispy outside and succulently juicy inside.
