Maison Akira is a long-established French restaurant that opened in 1998. Veteran Chef Akira studied under world-renowned French Chef Joel Robuchon before coming to Los Angeles, where he honed his skills at the Ritz Carlton and as an executive chef at The Peninsula. He was selected as one of the top 10 French chefs in Los Angeles in 2015.

Chef Akira’s signature dish is “Miso Marinated Chilean Sea Bass in a Honey Lemon Jus.” His talent for creating French cuisine with a Japanese flair goes back to his days at The Peninsula, where he served this dish as part of a special menu for the Emperor and Empress of Japan when they visited Los Angeles. The sea bass is marinated just overnight to ensure a lighter taste than traditional Japanese miso-marinated fish. A combination of butter and refreshing lemon together with the miso-infused sea bass makes it truly French.

Most of the seasonings used come from Japan. The seafood, including scallops, yellowtail, conger, bonito, and saury is also from Japan and is always thoroughly checked by the chef himself. They try to use Japanese fish as much as possible because of the difference in taste as well as texture. If they happen to get their hands on fresh seasonal fish, it may be served as a special menu item of the day.

Sake goes perfectly with this restaurant’s Japanese-French cuisine. Along with junmai ginjo sake, they offer sparkling sake, and hot sake in the wintertime. Many people think of French food as served in courses, but many customers here order a la carte. It’s a restaurant you can visit casually for any occasion.
*There is a last call for orders, but no set closing time for the restaurant.
