The Sunset Strip embraces a premier collection of rock clubs, like the Roxy, and the Whiskey, that are on the cutting edge of the entertainment business.
The Strip is also known for its great restaurants. Katana, a favorite of Janet Jackson and Jermaine Dupree, is also a journeyPod pick.
journeyPod recently had a lovely dinner with the Executive General Manager of Katana, and got an inside scoop on the food and the celebs that make Katana the hotspot. On a Tuesday night at 6:45pm the place was packed with over 310 reservations. We sampled everything from Tamanohikari Sake, to tuna carpaccio in a soy truffle sauce with argula, avocado and black pepper, to chilean sea bass skewers, and our favorite--by far-- was the spicy salmon over cripy rice cakes. You hungry yet?
Enjoy the unique sounds of Fruit Cake Superbeing and their song, Yella Belly.
