Today, Sushi Roku Hollywood (8445 W. 3rd St., Los Angeles, 90048; 323.655.6767) becomes part of artist JR’s “The Wrinkles of the City” project, a compilation of murals found on the streets of Los Angeles. The collection features images of Angelenos found on buildings throughout the city, providing a visual tour of work from Silverlake to Venice Beach, with Sushi Roku in between. JR’s newest mural debuts today on the western-facing exterior wall of the restaurant, which recently underwent a remodel of both its interior design and menu.
Artwork in numerous mediums plays a role in each of Innovative Dining Group’s restaurants, adding a distinctive touch to each space and articulating the group’s forward-thinking approach to design and décor. Highlights include a unique woodblock sculpture and custom red felt wall at BOA Steakhouse, and Sushi Roku Hollywood’s three-dimensional wood relief of a bonsai tree by master guitar maker Stephen McSwain. At 6 feet high and 34 feet long—running the length of one wall in the room—it is a captivating focal point for diners.
