Kai Japanese Roots | 10% OFF

It is with great pride and pleasure that we introduce ourselves to the DTLA community and DTLA Rendezvous as Kai Japanese Roots.

We would like to invite all DTLA Rendezvous Premium Members to our restaurant, please show your digital membership card and receive a %10 discount on your meal.

When we set out to create a Japanese restaurant 2 years ago, we had already been doing business in Downtown Los Angeles for over two decades . The goal was to craft something that would not only be authentic to Japanese cuisine and aesthetics, but equally rooted in our historically rich environment.

Our guiding principle was to create a space that exemplifies the elegance of honesty and incorporates the vibrant rhythm of our surrounding environment, foremost in cuisine and design. Years of research, months of selection, hours of interviews and a trip to Japan led us to the point where we are proud to present our conception as Kai: Japanese Roots.

Our executive chef, Miki Fujita, trained and apprenticed in Japan and working for 27 years in Japanese cuisine, exudes a deep pride and enthusiasm for every dish that he carefully crafts. This same ethic flows through all aspects of food and drink, as our sake list is carefully curated to appreciate the robust spectrum of flavor and dimensions of sake in a meaningful way.  We sought out the best and most celebrated Japanese whiskey and malts, craft beers, and sochu spirits to be both comprehensive and precise. Our teas and cocktails express the subtlety and profundity of Japanese flavors often overlooked.

Most importantly, those things are meaningless without guests and the spirit of hospitality, so we ask you to join us in completing our restaurant.

Clifton’s Cafeteria – Before Andrew Meieran

This is an exciting month for Downtown LA with the opening of Le Petit Paris, The Broad Museum, and after 4 years and $10 million in renovations, Clifton's Cafeteria!

There have been many previews and photos of the new Clifton's Cafeteria (links at the end of this post), which opens to the public on September 22nd, but here are some photos and captions (before I knew much about Clifton's history and Meieran's project) from October 2011, just before Clifton's shut its doors for the remodel.


Clifton’s Cafeteria, a landmark in Downtown LA, was recently bought out by the owners of The Edison – a very popular speak-easy bar in Downtown LA that still demands a long line on the weekends to get in.   Clifton’s is now undergoing renovations and we were lucky to stumble into it one last time before the major changes.

outside old Clifton's

Clifton’s Cafeteria is located on Broadway right off the corner of 7th street.  The photos above show how Clifton’s looks today and how it looked originally (I wish I knew what year the photo was taken).  I wonder when and who decided to cover it up and if the new owners will make any major changes to the facade.


Welcome bear.  To the left, when you enter, is a cute wooden bear welcoming you.


Clifton's trays.


The food serving area is quite big.  They must have served a lot of food in its prime.  The above photo was taken on a late Sunday afternoon well past the lunch rush, but it definitely does not have much of a crowd anymore.


Carving station.


There are cute vintage styled signs everywhere.


As you can see, the food isn’t spectacular.  It’s the reason why we’ve been to Clifton’s only a total of 3 times in the 2.5 years we’ve lived in Downtown LA.  As much as we don’t want them to renovate the place, we’re looking forward to better food that’s better in quality and taste.  Hopefully they’ll keep the food at a reasonable price.


After you’ve made your food selection and pay the cashier, you step out into the 1st floor dining area.


The 1st & 2nd floors have a forest theme.  If you look closely, the trees along the walls are coat racks!


The photo above was taken on the 2nd floor above the cashier area and you can see the entrance/exit out to Broadway.  They also have a little bakery in the front.


The Pimp.  The first time we went to Clifton’s, we saw “The Pimp”.  He’s always dressed in fuzzy hats and jackets that light up!  He looks like he’s been going to Clifton’s since his prime!  I wonder if he’ll still be going there after the renovations.



There’s tiered seating between the 2 stairways and a little waterfall.


2nd Floor Seating.  There’s even more seating on the 2nd floor above the food serving area.


The above photo is taken by the waterfall area looking into the 2nd floor seating area.   To the right is one of the stairways from the 2nd floor to the 3rd floor.  Yes, there’s another floor!


When you first come up to the 3rd floor, they have a section with old photos and souvenirs.


Photos of the original owners of Clifton’s – 5 generations!


All you can eat for 64¢! ..and it looks like there was another location on Olive & 6th??


3rd Floor Seating Area.

So, as you can see, Clifton’s Cafeteria is huge!  From what I’ve read on-line, the new owners plan to keep the 1st floor as a cafeteria and turn the top 2 floors into a tiki lounge and night club!  I really hope that the renovations are more in line with restoring the place vs. a complete change, but either way, I’m glad that they’re working on bringing something “new” to the neighborhood.


The outside of Clifton’s has a lot of tiling and decoration.  Looks likes this gentleman will miss the old Clifton’s too.

Photos taken on September 24-25, 2011.

Guisados DTLA – Coming Soon!

The Spring Arcade is going through a transformation and bringing lots of yummy goodness to Downtown LA! Crepes Sans Frontieres, an authentic French creperie, opened it's doors in September 2013, launching a series a great eateries to come.

Gelateria Uli opened its doors in April 2014 in the Spring Arcade.

Gelateria Uli was the 2nd to join the Spring Arcade gallery, opening it's doors last month in April and offering house-made, seasonal gelato and sorbet and also serving fine drip coffee, espresso drinks, and pastries.

Guisados is next! I visited the Echo Park location yesterday to get my fix and had the chance to briefly speak with co-owner, Armando, who's extremely excited and anxious for their 3rd location to open.  Guisados DTLA was originally slated to open since November 2013, but the unanticipated delays of city approval on construction have been postponing their open date. Construction is moving along quickly now, so hopefully we can get our Guisados fix walking distance from us soon!


I love the vegetarian and pescetarian options at Guisados. They offer more than just rice, beans, lettuce, tomato, and cheese for vegetarians. They have calabacitas (squash & corn) and hongas (mushroom) tacos that are so flavorful and absolutely delicious! I also like their pescado (fish) taco. Their soft corn tortillas are freshly hand-made in-house and you can watch them make it right outside their window at the Echo Park location.

I'm excited and can't wait for them to open so that I can just walk there day or night as they're planning to open late nights on the weekends! Hopefully, they'll open by this Summer.

The Spring Arcade is located in the Historic Core of DTLA, between 5th an 6th Streets (closer to 6th) and goes through from Spring Street to Broadway.

DTLA Resident Appreciation Soiree @ Salon On Main | August 2, 2013

On August 2, 2013, Salon on Main, a full service salon located in the Old Bank District of Downtown Los Angeles, hosted a DTLA Resident Appreciation Soiree with complimentary cocktails, hors d'oeurves, AND mini services!  DTLA Rendezvous members attended the event for an evening of pampering.

Owner, John Esparza (pictured above), and his staff are very friendly and welcoming and were excited to host us as they offered us wines and drinks as soon as we each arrived!

DTLA Rendezvous member, Daisy, settles in with her plate of hors d'oeurves as she gets her hair flat ironed.

Rebecca gets a complimentary shaping and trim.

No photos, but I received a nice complimentary manicure with some nail art!

Thanks again to John and his crew for a great evening of pampering!
