Beloved Yatai Asian Tapas Morphs Into Roppongi

Hopefully it’s no more than a name change.

Yatai Asian Tapas, the hidden gem Japanese restaurant tucked away in a courtyard off Sunset Boulevard, is now sporting a bright red plaque with a new name, Roppongi. A call to the restaurant reveals new ownership who are keeping the old Yatai menu in the current soft open phase, with plans to roll out new menu items after grand opening in the upcoming weeks.

Roppongi, a district of Tokyo with vibrant nightlife, is a fitting name for the restaurant, which has served West Hollywood denizens well as a girls' night out hot spot. Roppongi will keep Yatai's popular happy hour menu with specials like the $5 cold bamboo sake generously poured from a giant bamboo shoot.
