CHAYA began under an enormous shade tree in Hayama, Japan, centuries ago, where they offered tea, sweets, and respite to weary horseback travelers. Today, there are two locations in Japan (Hikage Chaya and La Marée de Chaya) and four locations in California (Beverly Hills, Venice, Downtown L.A., and San Francisco) as well as a recently opened CHAYA sushi concept at LAX Tom Bradley International Terminal.  Famous for serving imaginative Euro-Asian cuisine and for a tradition of unmatched hospitality, the landmark CHAYA Brasserie in Beverly Hills has been a dining destination among celebrities, entertainment executives, and epicureans for 30 years. Each location embraces the distinct neighborhood that surrounds it, including CHAYA Brasserie San Francisco, located on the Embarcadero, which features sweeping views of the Bay Bridge.
