Chaya in Venice is one of my go to restaurants for special occasions for the last 20 years; I have celebrated several of my birthdays and a graduation here. Because of their wonderful eclectic Asian food and outstanding service, this is also one of my short listed restaurant recommendations for friends and business acquaintances.

Twenty years in the restaurant business in Los Angeles is like twenty years of a good marriage in this town, a rare and wonderful reminder that some good things do last. Chaya is closing to remodel (a restaurant version of a face lift), from tomorrow, March 27, through Wednesday, March 31, and opening up a mini version of their menu for only $20 per person starting at 5 pm offering all you can eat sushi, beer, wine and sake! All this will be held in the archway next to the restaurant and all proceeds will benefit C-Cap the charity that benefits education in the culinary arts.

It is not often you get to enjoy a longtime favorite at unbeatable prices for a good cause, it’s like winning a culinary trifecta! Go Chaya!
