Looking to spice things up? This week we’re featuring restaurants that infuse California cuisine with Asian flavors and textures. From Hannah An’s Vietnamese version of crab and uni noodle to Chef Tin Vuong’s Sa-po mixed seafood hot pot and Sang Yoon’s beef and broccoli, you’ll be instantly transported to the East (even if you live on the Westside).
This summer only, Hinoki & the Bird will also be offering a secret, off-menu cocktail exclusive to Reserve diners. Made with Bombay gin, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, Aperol and lemon, “The Reserve” is the perfect summer cocktail.

Little Sister (South Bay)
Little Sister’s menu showcases Chef Tin Vuong’s take on the interesting and rich collision of food and culture born out of the European colonization of Southeast Asia. Dishes blend and balance the spices and flavors of Southeast Asia with French techniques and Dutch and British colonial influences

Even if you aren’t traveling to Asia anytime soon, you can still dine like you are. Request a table through Reserve, and you can leave your wallet (and passport) at home.
