It's hard to count all the reasons people visit Hotoke. For instance, some guests come for a candlelit dinner date, taking advantage of the space's warm wood tones and bottles of sparkling sake. Others are simply there for the sushi, which they enjoy amid the bustle of an interactive sushi bar that dishes up seared sashimi and seafood ceviche. There's also a lounge, where the energy increases as the night wears on and guest DJs start spinning. Of course, no matter why visitors are there, they're sure to enjoy Asian favorites such as roast pork steam buns and kumamoto oysters, as well as waterfalls, wines from around the world, and hours spent discussing how the 9-foot golden Buddha statue finds clothes that fit.
