kaiseki in l.a.

  • d

Anyone with suggestions for an authentic (or least top-notch and proper) kaiseki dinner in the LA area? I did a search for kaiseki and received finds only in New York and San Francisco.

I've never experienced kaiseki before and I have wanted to give it a go. However, I wouldn't know on a first outing whether what I was getting was the "real deal" or not. Your recommendations are appreciated.

I've heard that A Thousand Cranes atop the New Otani Hotel does kaiseki. Does it do it justice?
