It is time for you to be romantic. Where should you take her? Whether it is Valentine’s Day, her birthday, your anniversary, or you just want to show her how much you care, I have just the place. K-ZO is a chic restaurant in Culver City, CA known for its authentic sushi, sake, and small bites. But what makes K-ZO different than every other sushi restaurant in Los Angeles?
First and most importantly, it is extremely romantic. K-ZO was created by a happily married couple, a Master Chef and a Designer, both from Japan, who bring authenticity, passion and exquisite style to their endeavor, a true labor of love! With sushi bars, a sake bar and table seating, the ambiance has a sleek industrial feel that still manages to be warm and inviting. It screams “romansu”!
The next feature that sets K-ZO apart from other sushi restaurants is its chef, Keizo (K-ZO) Ishibi. Keizo is classically trained in both Japanese and French cuisine and has over thirty years of experience. You will discover that his creativity and innovation bring a fresh interpretation to classical cooking styles. He will be honored to surprise your honey with a sushi roll she has never tried before as he loves being part of the entire experience.
The dishes and small plates are ever so tasty. Start off with a hot bowl of miso soup and a yummy salad. Naturally they have a huge variety of sushi and rolls. And if you are not a sushi fan? Don’t worry, they serve many other options such as the smoked vegetable stack, chicken teriyaki and grilled salmon. And what would sushi be without sake? K-ZO’s vast sake selection comes from all over Japan, making it a standout among its peers. K-ZO also serves wine, beer, and a variety of other beverages so order your favorite drink and make a toast to your sweetie. No romantic date would be complete without feeding each other some dessert. They offer a nice selection of dessert including chocolate fondant and mochi ice cream. No girl can resist chocolate or ice cream!
K-ZO will be offering a Valentine’s Day 5-course pre-fixe dinner menu, a passionate odyssey for the palate. It will be available from February 11-14. See K-ZO’s website (www.k-zo.com) for more information and reservations.Michele
