Cocktails and Yakitori at Hatch LA

HATCH LA opened one year ago in downtown LA at The Bloc, a block-long open-air urban center located on 7th Street at the 7th Street Metro Stop. What was once a covered shopping mall housing Macy’s and the Sheraton Grand Los Angeles Hotel is now a vibrant open space with restaurants and shops.

Hatch is a modern izakaya style restaurant serving yakitori, Japanese skewered chicken from organic Jidori chicken, as well as fresh raw fish and creative plates.

And now they are serving cocktails with a Japanese twist.

On special occasions, Executive Chef Daniel Shemtob will have Wagyu Beef A5 Nigiri. On the launch of the cocktail menu, he had this special dish for us to taste. Delicate pieces of wagyu seared and served over rice, it was a perfect bite. If you happen to be at Hatch and they offer this as a special, do not miss it.

With a full bar, creative cocktails and small plates, Hatch Yakitori + Bar is a fun place to meet with friends.
