  • Will Sushi
    Almost too beautiful to eat, the carefully-plated cuisine at Will Sushi is thoughtfully constructed by experienced sushi chefs working behind a long, dark bar. Here, they roll colorful cuts of fish into specialty maki rolls which then twist across a plate in the shape of a writhing dragon or surrounded by colorful flourishes of house-made sauces. The kitchen works collaboratively with sushi chefs to build bento boxes, which can be customized with components such as salmon and beef teriyaki.

  • Ebisu Restaurant
    Among Japan's Seven Dieties of Good Fortune, Ebisu was the right source of inspiration for a sushi restaurant. The god is considered a diety of rice and the kitchen, and is also believed to ensure a good catch while fishing. He certainly seems to have brought good fortune to Steve Fujii and his wife Koko, who have owned Ebisu for 30 years. Every night, lines wind out the door for Ebisu's selection of ultra-fresh sushi—according to SF Gate, the Fujis use up around 60 pounds of fish per day, which the publication says "pretty much guarantees the freshest fish and explains why the sushi is so exquisite." Diners can browse the sushi menu, which features Omakase, the chef’s own selections, and rolls of nigiri, temaki, and hosomaki, but critics suggest conferring with the sushi chef for the best recommendations. Meanwhile, a long list of hot and cold appetizers serves as a prequel to panko fried oysters and Kobe beef cooked in a Japanese-style iron pot. To complement the various entrees, a collection of sakes and wines are available by the glass, bottle, or carafe.

  • Hahn's Hibachi
    Okay. This is not your typical Japanese restaurant. If you want friends or family to experience the wide range of flavors that Asian cuisine has to offer, this is definitely the place to take them! Hahn’s Hibachi specializes in original Asian barbecue with a focus on Korean. Barbecued chicken, beef, pork, short ribs—you name it and they’ll barbecue it and put it on a plate next to a fresh cucumber salad, spicy kimchi, and rice. This is down-home cooking—straight from their mom’s kitchen. Try the barbecue, or traditional Korean bi-bim-bop, which is a bowl of delicious vegetables and meat served over rice. Don’t forget to slap a fried egg on top!

  • Hanami Brasserie
    Hanging in the purple glow of Hanami Brasserie's storefront are two signs?one in English, one in Japanese. It's a proper precursor to the fusion of flavors that greet guests inside. Hanami's seasoned sushi chefs specialize in putting western spins on sushi favorites, including avocado-filled California rolls or Sunkiss rolls with baked salmon, spicy mayo, and stuffed snow crab. Of course, raw fish is also popular. Several dishes feature artistic spreads of ocean-fresh cuts on ice, such as delicate nigiri or a sashimi combo with five more types of seafood than the average bowl of cereal. Even Hanami's salads are beautifully plated: in particular, the smoked-salmon salad features fish folded into a ring of mandarins, then crowned with bright-orange roe.
