It can safely be said that N/Naka is the best thing to have happened to Japanese dining in Los Angeles. Taking the cuisine to another level with fine dining pre-set courses, the restaurant has become one of the most coveted places to eat in town. The venue functions on the basis of reservations, wherein booking must be arranged well in advance, after which the price of the pre-set dinner is pre-charged to the credit card. The chef prepares an exquisite menu based on the indications of the diners, communicated beforehand. The meal is then ready and waiting for the guests. Outside beverages are allowed at an extra fee, though wine and sake are served here. Highly priced, the venue is making waves as a gourmet delight and has succeeded in grabbing the attention of the city.
