The Russian Orient at Yamashiro

As a pre-Valentine's Day celebration, my sister and I treated our parents to an extravagant night of fine dining and gorgeous views at Yamashiro. It was their first time. Just seeing how they were enamored by the breathtaking views overlooking the Los Angeles cityscape made my night. It was also their first time sampling wagyu beef on a himalayan salt plate that is heated up to 400 degrees. Incredibly tender, juicy and flavorful. I would recommend any first-time, Yamashiro patron to try out this dish.

My outfit was loosely inspired by 1920s, European cinema with a touch of modernity and edge. I layered a simple, beige blazer underneath my Endovanera coat jacket. The Obey fur cap, which I wore backwards, really accentuated the silhouette I was going for. I wore my vintage, cat-eye sunnies to shield myself from the intense flash coming from my camera, accented by my Florsheim brogue shoes. One of the staff members at the restaurant thought I had come from the Grammy's party.

All in all, it was a very enchanting evening over good food and hearty conversation. I am glad I got to celebrate Valentine's with the parentals!
