Katsu Ya and Tommy Hirase

Bob Brooks | Dec 24, 200403:26 PM

Chef Hirase, formerly of the Nouveau Cafe Blanc in Beverly Hills, has been reportedly dividing his cooking time between the two valley locations of Katsu Ya.

Supposedly, he is changing/expanding their menus to include the French fusion cooking he is so famous for.

Unfortunately, I sent a friend to the Encino location a Friday or so ago and he reported that nothing was on offer except traditional sushi.

Does anyone know what Hirase is actually up to at these restaurants?
