Hayato is an exceptional Michelin 2-star restaurant located in Los Angeles, renowned for its authentic Japanese dining experience known as kappo kaiseki.
Type of Work
We are proud to have participated in the Hayato project and earned its 2 Michelin Stars through our dedicated efforts.
Every step of this website was carefully curated to guide customers on a subtle and mysterious path towards experiencing the restaurant, without revealing everything at once. The key focus of this site development was minimalism, ensuring an authentic representation of the restaurant's values.
At Hayato, we believe that the journey to an exceptional dining experience begins the moment customers enter our website. By providing informative content on kaiseki, a traditional Japanese multi-course meal, customers can begin to immerse themselves in our world of culinary excellence before even stepping foot in our restaurant. Our site serves as the gateway to the unique culinary journey that awaits them at Hayato, inviting them to explore and discover the authentic flavors and minimalist aesthetic that define our brand
To translate the philosophy to our website, we took a unique approach that prioritizes the hand-written menu, created by Japanese masters. Through a subtle scroll effect, the menu unfolds, offering small glimpses of our signature dishes that customers can hover over for a sneak peek. Just like when customers step inside our restaurant, the website experience at Hayato is designed to be a seamless and immersive journey, where every detail is carefully considered to ensure an unforgettable experience.
