Japanese cuisine appeals to the eyes and the taste buds.
Hana Tokyo, a modern, new twist on Japanese cuisine, recently opened its doors and focuses on fresh, creative sushi and skilled hibachi chefs. Wanting to be closer to family, owner Alan Wu seized the opportunity to bring his successful Virginia-based Hana Tokyo restaurant to Fairfield when the former Tombo space came available. “I believe the Brickwalk location is center stage for Fairfield. It’s really a dining destination,” he says.
Upon entry, you’re greeted by a beautiful Japanese-inspired mural created by local painter Suzanne Bellehumeur. Beyond, you’ll find a dining room and an elevated tiki bar, which opens to an alfresco dining patio that seats twenty (seasonal). Hana Tokyo also boasts a sushi bar made from reclaimed wood. Groups will love the Love Boat, a gorgeous selection of sushi rolls and sashimi presented in a large wooden model of a Japanese fishing boat. The inventive signature entrées include the Pizza Sandwich with spicy tuna, avocado, crab, and lobster topped with eel and wasabi, the Blackened Tuna Taco with a spicy wasabi aioli wonton, and Toro Tartar with a quail egg.
At the eight hibachi tables, entertaining chefs create flaming displays including onion volcanoes, and show off an array of tricks while preparing a delicious meal before your eyes (choose from a variety of seafood, beef, poultry, or vegetarian). Delivery available.
