Last week Plan Check Kitchen + Bar opened its doors in West LA. With modern design and architecture the restaurant makes a statement in the Little Osaka neighborhood, while the American comfort food and distinct bar selection give it a reason to “check” out. The chef is none other than, Ernesto Uchimura, who was corporate executive chef at Umami Burger and will be preparing dishes in the exhibition kitchen, where guests will be able to see the food come to life. With only enough space for about 110 guests, the atmosphere will be intimate and communal. Giving more than enough reason to check this place out is the drink menu that focuses on craft beers, signature cocktails and Japanese whiskey.

Can’t wait to check this place out soon. Photos courtesy of Plan Check Kitchen.
