I love the blue ribbon franchise in NYC so having something out here with their amazing fried chicken is the best! Fried chicken wings were 9/10 it could use a bit more seasoning but perfectly juicy and crunch and the wasabi honey definitely sets it off. The sushi rolls were perfectly fresh and delicious. I ordered the tiger roll and negi toro. The oxtail fried rice was also delicious and I loved our waitress Shannon she was perfect in every sense I’d go back for her.

Exposed wood and concrete interiors of ROW DTLA’s historic produce terminal is the ideal setting for Rappahannock Oyster Bar’s first West Coast location. Nestled in LA’s Warehouse District, just blocks from the Arts District and Little Tokyo, ROW DTLA offers a West Coast spin on our East Coast heritage. With an emphasis on sustainability, locally sourced, ethically fished, and responsibly farmed ingredients, the menu draws inspiration from the people of L.A. and the bounty of fresh produce, fish, and meat sourced in Southern California.
