Profile

This venue is closed.

A pebbled entryway that suggests a riverbed leads diners into Haku Sushi, where the same smooth stones mark the contours of the hostess stand, the sushi bar, and the back wall. The true aquatic effect, however, comes from the gorgeous cuts of fish arrayed in front of the sushi chefs. Sashimi is the specialty here: ruby slabs of tuna, buttery toro, and yellowtail, along with kanpachi—pink-fleshed baby yellowtail—imported from Japan. Freshness and proportion, with typically artful presentation, define the experience. Maki rolls, including an excellent spicy salmon with subtle scallion undertones, also make an appearance, as do teriyakis, tempuras, and appealing appetizers, like plump brine-scented jumbo shrimp shumai. The seaweed salad is taut, without the rubbery quality of lesser examples. Homemade tofu served ice-cold stands out, with a lightly grained texture that mimics ice cream’s mouthfeel. The restaurant’s interior has a refined sense of style, if not a lot of space. Tapered lights overhead provide a candle-ish glow on black-wood tables and floors. The only atmospheric dud is the soundtrack, a banal mix of electronica and pop that sounds plucked from a downtown shoe store.

Lunch Specials

Lunch specials are available daily from noon to 4 p.m. Rolls, tempuras, teriyakis, and bento boxes are among the offerings, most priced under $10.
