Mako's closed on Sundays - where to go for similar meal?

It's my b-day - husband works 6 days a week - we only have Sunday night to celebrate - and we're craving Mako. Any suggestions for alternatives?

  1. How about Orris on Sawtelle? I like Mako better, but Orris is also Asian fusion small plates--perhaps more French influenced than Mako. They are open on Sundays--since I also wanted to go to Mako a month or so ago and settled on Orris. I had a very good meal as I recall. It's quite a bit cheaper as well. Or Chinois, tho' I have no idea if they're open Sundays and have not been in years. In any case, have a great birthday!

    1. This idea won't work if your birthday is tomorrow... BUT, why not order a Mako's Bento Box Picnic Box to go for a Saturday night pick up, have your husband pick it up on his way home, where - you will have a special champagne (or beverage of choice) chilled and ready for your special picnic dinner for two. The bento box is beautiful, wrapped like a present and you get to keep it after your dinner! It is 3 tiers of appetizer, entrees and desserts. This way your birthday gets to be extended!

      Got the detail off of their website click on the Menu link and the bento box info link:

      Boxes are available for pick-up from 5:30-6:30 Tuesday - Saturday. Please place your order at least 24 hours in advance. 310.288.8338

      OTHERWISE... you may want to try Orris (more French in style) on Sawtelle. They are open at 5:30

      1. The trouble with Orris is they don't take reservations and if you want to eat later than 6:00 you have a long wait. Same neighborhood-2117 also on Sawtelle.

        1. If you don't mind eating at the counter, there is often no wait at Orris on Sundays.
