Downtown LA’s The Bloc welcomed its newest dining option earlier this week with the arrival of HATCH Yakitori + Bar on the complex’s lower level. HATCH’s menu places a heavy emphasis on skewers of Japanese-style grilled meats and vegetables along with bento boxes and traditional raw bar fare including oysters & crudo. The eatery is the creation of chef Daniel Shemtob, most notably the winner of Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race as well as the proprietor behind TLT Food, who has brought on a sake sommelier to help guests with drink selections. HATCH, featuring indoor and outdoor seating, is now serving patrons lunch and dinner six days a week with hours running from 11 a.m until 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday with a 1 a.m. closure Friday and Saturday nights.
