A neighborhood oasis, Makani brings bold and vibrant flavors to the Westside. Executive chef Kevin Lee helms the kitchen with a spice-driven menu inspired by his Korean roots and Angeleno upbringing, which is heavily influenced by Los Angelesโ€™ diverse and eclectic communities. 

The rum-centric bar program touts over 80 varieties from around the world. Guests can also indulge with tiki cocktails upon request. The wine selection includes a progressive list of natural wines and grower champagnes which serve as the perfect compliment to the spice-forward dishes.

The cocktails have a heavy dose of rum and Tiki inspiration while the rather stylish ambience goes nicely with plates like crispy mung bean pancakes, chili-laden clams, and skirt steak โ€œssamโ€ with horseradish turmeric cream.
