Hinoki & The Bird joining our team.
Hinoki and the Bird has a vision, and we achieved that together.
If you're looking for the best Japanese fusion in LA, look no further than Hinoki and the Bird.

This chic travel-inspired restaurant takes its cues from Japanese and Asian fusion cuisine, blending exotic flavors with locally sourced, seasonal ingredients.

Hinoki and the Bird was founded by David Myers and chef Kuniko Yagi. In 2015, however, they handed the reins to chef Brandon Kida. Kida is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, and he served as opening executive chef at Clement at the Peninsula Hotel in New York. He is familiar with the farm-to-table journey of produce, and this knowledge drives his ever-changing Japanese inspired fare.

When you stop in at Hinoki and the Bird, you'll find that they're part of a uniform revolution. From the kitchen to the wait staff - even to the executive chef himself - Hinoki and the Bird is the first restaurant to outfit its entire team in our All Day Henley Chef Shirts & custom made aprons.

The henley tee is constructed of light weight, sweat wicking performance fabric. Each chef tee is equipped with a convenient storage pocket on the 3/4 sleeve, and a back storage pocket for your phone. The 3/4 sleeve length of the chef tee aids in moveability. Each chef uniform is overlayed with one of our bib aprons, complete with customization, to keep things clean. The tee also has apron straps to keep your apron comfortably in place.

Are you looking for the perfect workwear to outfit your team? As you have seen, there are many options beyond the traditional chef uniform. The light weight, sweat wicking performance fabric of our henley tee makes it a great option, both during and after work. Ask about customization for any of our products, including bib aprons. Customization for aprons includes the color of the garment and apron straps, screen printing, and embroidery.

From chef shirts to aprons, Helt Studio has your workwear needs covered.
