While autumn teases with cool breezes, and the sun still sets after 7pm, the time is perfect for al fresco dining.  The steps that reach down to Sunset Boulevard from a mock Italian villa set the mood for Katana.

Besides having great sushi, Katana is known for their robata menu.  Robata is a traditional Japanese technique of grilling over open coals.  From Chilean sea bass and Kobe beef, to shiitake mushrooms stuffed with minced chicken, the flavors are exquisite.

The patio is filled with a bevy of eye candy, including the hostesses and waitresses.  While you try to decipher which sake is going to hurt the least, give one of the fresh daily sushi specials a try.  If you managed to control your appetite, the molten chocolate cake is a pretty damn good way to finish the meal.
