MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Tucked inside the Century Woods complex just past Fox Studios, this hideaway flies a bit under the radar. Fittingly, hinoki & the bird's entrance is dramatic and the interior is just as stunning. A clear thread of Japanese subtlety runs through the eye-catching décor, anchored by a long cedar bar and open kitchen, which turns out surprisingly good food. Less surprising? The higher-flying prices.

Signature dishes flaunt a modern sensibility, often with hinoki wood playing a central role. Highlights include a tranche of pristine white sea bass in a complex duck broth, surrounded by gently wilted greens. A revamped rendition of black pepper-crab rice foregoes authenticity by adding tart pickled eggplant for a salty, sweet and spicy trio of flavors.
