This omakase-only Japanese gem in Mint Plaza may be one of the city's most expensive restaurants, but those who can afford the bill will be rewarded with a truly luxurious experience. Every detail of Hashiri has been finely crafted, from the hand-painted dishes and crystal sake glasses to the parting seasonal treat presented to diners at the end of their meal. This dining room is home to a host of Asian diners and suits, but don’t be surprised if you see a hoodie-clad millionaire or two seated next to you. Chef Takashi Saito and team offer their own creative hybrid of two classic cuisines—the artistry of sushi fused with the ceremony of a kaiseki meal. Exceptional dishes showcase the best of the season and have included tender pen shell clam with citrus-splashed fava beans and bamboo shoots; or lightly grilled A5 Wagyu beef over celeriac purée and charred ramps. Then move on to some outstanding nigiri like buttery Spanish mackerel brushed with citrus, pungent aji with minced chives and ginger, chutoro, otoro, as well as Hokkaido uni. Sake connoisseurs will enjoy the exclusive selection, while novices can rest assured as the helpful staff is happy to steer their way to the right choice.
