From California Home & Design Magazine: Kumo means “cloud” in Japanese. Kumo is also a new restaurant and bar on the popular Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood where it’s permissible to wear white after Labor Day because the entire restaurant has a white theme.
Former talent agent Michael Ovitz spawned the high-tech joint. It offers Murano glass chandeliers, iridescent walls, five flat screen TVs with Japanimation showing on them, exotic cocktails like the Black Margarita with Lavender Salt, plus a wide variety of cuisine, from cold salads and small plates to sushi, sashimi and entrees.
