Falling in to disrepair, the estate again entered the real estate market. Once sold, upon discovering the boarded-up beauty behind the plywood, Yamashiro, the restaurant, emerged anew.
The unique gardens feature heavily in its beauty, with a 600 year old pagoda playing a featured role. In addition, a laughing Buddha smiles upon visitors dropping by.
A beautiful, romantic gem, it serves delicious fare and elegant cocktails. I’ve dined here twice, a treat each time. The restaurant occasionally serves as the backdrop for the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles’s Cocktails in Historic Places. Without a doubt, take any opportunity presented to visit this gorgeous gem in Hollywood.
