Gonpachi Finally Says Sayonara to La Cienega Tomorrow

New, 20 comments

Kozo Hasegawa, creator of Global Dining which operates Gonpachi both in Beverly Hills and Torrance (in addition to Monsoon, La Boheme, and countless eateries in Japan), has finally decided to end the life of his almost five-year-old La Cienega Japanese eatery effective tomorrow. Can't say this is an entire shocker, although Gonpachi did put forth a valiant effort by introducing a new menu and bring in Marcel Vigneron to cook. Buttt what's on tap for the future? We're told the Torrance branch of Gonpachi is going strong, so nothing to report on over there. As for the Beverly Hills space, Kozo is hanging on to the restaurant with potential plans to roll out a Test Kitchen-esque pop-up dining concept. More to come.
