It would be easy to view Hinoki and the Bird, David Myers' new Century City restaurant, as another flash-in-the-pan L.A. hot spot, a vaguely Japanese-inspired, California small-plates restaurant that caters to the cocktail crowd. But that would be missing a lot of the point. Because while Hinoki is a perfectly good spot to quaff cocktails and wolf down (delicious, impossibly crispy) fried chicken bits, when you stop to notice its subtleties, it's hard not to end up slightly awed by what Myers and Co. have achieved.
