Hatsuhana

ADDRESS: 237 Park Ave, (near 46th St), New York, NY 10017

CUISINE: Japanese, Sushi

FEATURES: Full Bar, Handicap Access, Patio Seating, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly

DETAILS
These two sushi stalwarts exposed many Midtown Manhattanites to the delicate art of sushi for the first time. Nowadays, sushi spots abound, often specializing in blaring house music, spicy mayonnaise-soaked, deep-fried rolls, and architecturally questionable stacked offerings. Hatsuhana takes a different approach by sticking to the old approach, claiming, "Sushi as a cuisine is conceptually simple. Ironically, its simplicity also makes it most complicated." The emphasis is on freshness and expert technique. The menu offers some basic sushi rolls and teriyaki and tempura dishes, but you'd probably be best served to leave your dinner up to the chef. There's the chef's sushi special (10 pieces), sashimi special (seven pieces) and the popular Box of Dreams, nine pieces of raw or cooked fish and sushi rice in a lacquer box. Both restaurants are popular for business lunches and for their artfully arranged takeout preparation as well. Reservations suggested. Full bar. Serving lunch and dinner Mon-Fri. Closed Sat-Sun. "Of all the city's sushi bars, Hatsuhana best bridges the gap between East and West. ... The sushi and sashimi are always very good and can be extraordinary, especially if you put yourself in the hands of the chef."
- The New York Times

"If possible sit at the bar and trust the chef's recommendations."
- New York magazine

New York magazine: Critics' Pick
Zagat 2014: 25 food rating (very good to excellent)
