Part of Shibumi & KushiBa~

KUSHIBA~ 串 バー which translates to “stick/skewer” “bar”, is a 50 seat restaurant and bar serving Kushikatsu. Kushikatsu is a sub category of the term “izakaya” -Japanese bar with food- that started in downtown Osaka in the Shinsekai district in the 1920's.

Kushikatsu (or Kushiage – what they call it in Tokyo) is an Osaka delicacy. They are skewers that are coated in a light and crispy batter and then deep-fried to perfection. KUSHIBA~ will offer 20 skewers with a variety of meats, seafood, and vegetables.

The skewers will be served with a variety of dipping sauces, including a traditional Japanese sweet and sour sauce and a spicy sesame mustard dip. In addition to kushikatsu, KUSHIBA will offer a selection of other Japanese dishes, including chilled tofu, potato salad, chopped raw fish and steamed wagyu corned beef to name a few. The restaurant will have a full bar, which includes Japanese beers, sake, shochu, and cocktails. No wine is served, but there will be an off menu Champagne list.

The interior of the restaurant is decorated with period-appropriate furnishings. Burnt cypress surrounds the room and early Showa Era furniture and fabrics are expressed throughout, offering a truly immersive dining experience that will transport guests back to Showa era Japan.
KUSHIBA~ is the perfect place to experience the unique culture and cuisine of Japan, creating a piece of Osaka in Echo Park.
