First there was Toi, the Thai restaurant with locations in Hollywood, West Hollywood and Santa Monica. Then came Koi, the trendy Japanese restaurant and lounge on La Cienega. Chi, a hip spot in the Hyatt West Hollywood soon followed, as did Yi (officially called Yi Cuisine), a sophisticated Asian restaurant. The chef? Rodelio Aglibot, a veteran of, you know, Koi. Finally, we thought the whole trend must have peaked, but recently Kai opened in the old Rebecca's space.
