Today, we're at Geisha House, a modern Japanese restaurant, sushi bar and sake lounge that embraces the flavor of traditional Japan while catering to the hip, sophisticated clientele of Los Angeles. At the restaurant today, Barry Levinson is filming his newest film, featuring Robert DeNiro. We visited with Lonnie Moore, partner of the Dolce Group, a Los Angeles-based restaurant and nightlife team whose portfolio includes Geisha House, Dolce Enoteca, Ketchup, Les Deux, and Bella Cucina Italiana. Dolce features some big A Lister celeb investors including: Ashton Kutcher, Jamie Kennedy, Dule Hill (yes of West Wing fame), Wilmer Valderrama, Chris Masterson, Danny Masterson and Laura Prepon.
