I had been hearing about Hana for a long time…. and finally tried it recently. Set in a relatively nondescript shopping center, the decor once inside is welcoming with a large Sake bar area and nicely spaced tables as well as an active sushi bar. There were five of us at dinner and our waitress was warm and knowledgeable suggesting that we go “family style” and try lots of items. While not inexpensive this was definitely the way to go. The two items pictured here were standouts, the Happy Spoon had two different types of salmon roe, an oyster and was bathed in a little crème fraiche. It was a perfect blend of flavors and textures. The chefs mixed sashimi was the best I have had. A generous portion, enough for two, super fresh and absolutely yummy. Seeing several of our chef friends dining here too is always a good sign.
We had one vegetarian along for our dinner and she found plenty of tasty items to try. The cooked creamy salmon hand roll again with a dash of crème fraiche disappeared quickly and more were ordered.
All in all this was truly outstanding Sushi. Don’t miss it if you are in the area…..and even if it means a bit of a drive take the time to seek this restaurant out.
