After a successful year of welcoming local and tourist diners since opening its doors in 2018, JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles closed its acclaimed sushi tasting restaurant INN ANN, as of December 2019, to begin preparations for next phase of its restaurant project.
In its opening year, INN ANN invited Chef Taro Araki, executive chef for the Consul General of Japan in Los Angeles and the recipient of the Excellency Award by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan in 2016, to help produce a seasonal kaiseki tasting menu to offer patrons a rare experience to dine like foreign dignitaries for a limited time. Following Araki, Michelin-starred Chef Morihiro “Mori” Onodera served as the executive chef as he shared his deep knowledge and mastery of rice and sushi through his original tasting menu incorporating California ingredients and produce. Throughout the year, INN ANN consistently received strong media reviews.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, JAPAN HOUSE Los Angeles temporarily closed on March 18 and looks forward to sharing about its next phase of the restaurant in the future.
