Nonna is Italian for grandmother, but besides respect for tradition, this spacious Sunset Strip ingenue is molto moderno. The restrained elegance of gleaming wood floors, paneled walls, and minimalist furnishings is offset by the exuberant energy from the large display kitchen.<br /><br />Dishes are carefully made from superior ingredients and presented simply in generous portions. The menu showcases excellent products in plates of tangy, imported buratta, or prosciutto and melon. A bowl of orecchiette topped with ground sausage and aged pecorino is nothing fancy but made with care. Lighter Californian fare like thin-crust pizza and seared ahi tuna can also be found.<br /><br />A glassed-in wine cellar has a strong collection of reds from Tuscany and Piedmont.

This Mediterranean wine bistro has a West Coast shabby chic vibe, complete with showy linen drapes, rustic wooden tables and boisterous, hip diners. The tapas menu features both cold (ranging from antipasto to an assortment of olives) and hot (including bacon wrapped medjool dates and braised beef short ribs) varieties.

At CHAYA Brasserie, Our Corporate Executive Chef Shigefumi Tachibe, who is the culinary force behind every Chaya restaurant, creates a menu that reflects his pioneering approach to Euro Asian cuisine. Chef Tachibe infuses exotic ingredients and honored culinary traditions from his native Japanese roots into all of his menus. This culinary approach is reflected in our lunch and dinner menus, offered in the dining room, bar, and patio. In addition to our dinner menu, comprised of an array of salads, hot and cold appetizers, sushi, meat, fish and pasta, a seasonally spontaneous Chef’s Tasting Menu is available by request. Guests can enjoy Happy Hour specials in our bar and lounge featuring unique bar bites and signature cocktails. Our menus are refreshed all year long, using Farmer’s Market and locally-sourced ingredients. CHAYA Brasserie also offers half off bottles of wine on Tuesday nights. <br />

Everyone asks us the meaning of our restaurant. Mt is the abbreviation for Mountain and 8848 is the height (in meters) of the tallest mountain in the world, Mount Everest. The height of the mountain represents the quality of our food, and mountain represents the honest natural ingredients we put into every gourmet dish here at Mt8848. We promise we will always stand by our name with honest food and honest ingredients! Authentic European food with a bit of Himalayan cuisine, like our famous Dumplings (Momos), Royal Dal Bhat, tasty Thundering Chicken, popular Chicken Tikka Masala and our world class desserts!

"A new restaurant furnished and modeled nicely, in a bad location. It was just O.K."

"Too expensive for me. The food was good, service also. Other restaurants I prefer for the price."

Semi-private booths downstairs and rock star booths upstairs are surrounded by stunning views of crystal chandeliers and a glowing fireplace. Arguably one of the most romantic spots in L.A., the garden patio boasts a fireplace of its own beautifully framed by roses and greenery...a definite al fresco paradise. Expect a warm welcome, impeccable service, unparalleled cuisine, and chic crowd at this prime destination. Prepare to stimulate all of your senses at La Boheme. <br /><br />The menu is unique, multifaceted and is considered “New American with European Influences.”

Adding a splash of Mediterranean color to California, Prego's ambiance blends the warmth and rustic charm of old-world Italy with the electricity and vibrancy of a cosmopolitan restaurant. Lively exhibition kitchens allow diners to view the artful chefs creating delicious dishes. Our restaurant seats up to 250 guests with al fresco. Prego features a full bar and offers banquet and catering services. The menu at Prego emphasizes regional Italian cuisine, featuring authentic pizza baked in a wood-fired oven, freshly made pastas, grilled fresh fish, spit-roasted meats and fowl, and an extensive list of wines from Italy and California that will please even the most discriminating wine connoisseur. Our homemade desserts and pastries make a perfect ending to an unforgettable dining experience. Prego has received fine-dining awards from the Restaurant Writers' Association and the Wine and Food Society of Southern California. It has been a culinary destination for over two decades.
