Located on a hilltop overlooking Hollywood, Yamashiro is a straight-up classic, with views of LA most restaurants only dream about. The 100-year-old Japanese restaurant is massive and admittedly a bit over the top, but you won’t care. The food just got a big overhaul (for the better) and after one or five of those kamikaze martinis you’ll feel like the celebrity you were born to be.
