Sushi chef Hashida has a new restaurant in Mandarin Gallery

Acclaimed sushi chef Kenjiro “Hatch” Hashida has opened a new restaurant two floors about Hashida Sushi—and it’s got nothing to do with sushi.

Hashida Garo is an experimental Japanese restaurant with an arts space. Here, he’s going to be pushing out more creative plates that don’t fit the bill over at Hashida Sushi. Think Western and locally-inspired cakes—made the Japanese way, of course—paired with Japanese teas, a Japanese-style brunch on the weekends and various sets throughout the day. There’s also a reasonably big sake selection to pair with otsumami, or Japanese small plates, and a retail section where you can take Japanese goodies home. 

Chef Hatch doesn’t stop there: he’s also opening a Japanese-French restaurant Beni, which is slated to open next month. And much like the omakase set menus of Hashida Sushi, this French restaurant has two set menus starting at $128 for lunch and going up to $298 for a dinner degustation—clearly on par with its sushi counterpart. Expect ingredients like Ozaku wagyu and blue lobster to feature on the menu.
