Now Chaya? I still love Chaya Venice and go all the time, but when I have family in Cedar's, or have a business drink mid-town, Chaya Brasserie is my go-to. It's always solid and the bar is a great place to unwind - gorgeous room.
First Rivera, now this.
Chaya Brasserie, which served a rather creative and forward-thinking menu of French-Asian fare in Beverly Hills for nearly thirty years, is closing at the end of this month. From now until the 30th, executive chef Shigefumi Tachibe will be bringing back original dishes from the 1984 menu, including tuna tartare, grilled veal chop, and miso black bass with beurre blanc. On the 31st, they'll be throwing one final bash with passed hor d'oeuvres, unlimited dinner stations, open dessert bar and more for $65 per person.
