Katsuya Menu Items

With specialty cocktails, unique rolls, and spectacular sushi and sashimi platters, Chef Uechi skillfully translates Japanese flavors for the International palate. Katsuya’s Japanese kanji symbol “katsu” means “victory” or “to win” and it’s fitting considering the loyal following of Hollywood a-listers and Zagat critics the restaurant has won over.

The Chef

Katsuya analyzed the eating habits of the American public and stepped outside of what is considered to be traditional Japanese cuisine, mixing the former with California style cuisine. This innovation ignited the new sushi trend that spread like wildfire throughout other area restaurants.
