Once guests walk through Hayashi-Ya’s Japanese--style front gate, they become part of the Hayashi family—and that means feeling at home. To ensure this, the founder decorates his restaurant to recall a small Japanese village festooned with pink flower vines, wooden handrails, and polished-wood wall panels. Exposed brick offsets paper lanterns, which are stenciled with black Japanese script and glow as if flooded by honey. To enhance these decorative flourishes and the staff’s warm greetings of “I-ra-sai-ma-se!” (“welcome”), the eatery whips up a diverse menu of fresh-cut sashimi, sushi, and traditional Japanese dishes. Servers lead guests down red carpets to low-slung cushioned seats, where authentic floor dining pairs with raw and cooked fish—all flown in daily and prepared by master sushi chefs from Japan, Korea, and Atlantis. As the meal progresses, black lacquered tables populate with udon noodles dishes, teriyaki, and hibachi fare as speakers pulse with traditional Japanese music. To complement the menu, Hayashi-Ya also stocks a full bar with beers and wines, Japanese sake, and martinis.
