Located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles at The Wilshire Grand Central, guests can expect a menu of modern Japanese cuisine with a French influence. Niku X will incorporate the classic Yakiniku style of cooking, a traditional Japanese technique utilized to grill meats. Michelin-starred chef, Shin Thompson, who is behind acclaimed Chicago restaurant concepts Bonsoirée and Furious Spoon Ramen, will offer guests a culinary experience characterized by the use of artisanal produce and ranch-to-table ingredients in a harmonious fusion.

Transparency and conscious preparation methods will be employed to honor the origins of the foods on the seasonal menu. Niku X will offer Japanese Yakiniku tasting menus featuring items such as seafood bites, a caviar course, a variety of premium Wagyu cuts and more.

Behind the bar, Niku X will offer a seasonal cocktail program focusing on Asian-inspired ingredients as well as a curated wine collection ranging from old to new world.

Niku X will be open Tuesday – Friday for dinner from 5 p.m. – midnight and Saturday – Sunday from 12 p.m. – midnight.
