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.

Classicists can start with an order of 12 traditional wings ($9.79) that, like those Icarus wore, flew too close to the delicious, incandescent sauce globule in the sky. The multifarious roster of flavor paint includes honey barbecue, caribbean jerk, and asian zing sauces to diversify the fiery experience. Diners with tongues planted firmly on the ground can indulge in beefy fare such as the black & bleu burger seasoned with Cajun spices ($9.69) or a leafy honey-barbecue chicken salad ($9.39). Trivia contests broadcast on mounted televisions will engage the oft-idle regions of your brain that still remember who played in the 1933 World Series and which side won the Revolutionary War.
