Harney Sushi, San Diego, CA

Harney Sushi Restaurant Review

: A trailblazer, Harney Sushi is one of the first restaurants in San Diego to serve only sustainable seafood. The kitchen is overseen in an ecologically responsible manner, avoiding ingredients that are either over-fished or have a negative impact on the environment (former chef Robert Ruiz has left the restaurant). There are plenty of good eats at hand, like the Spicy Scallop roll with bay scallops, kani kama, cucumber and radish sprouts, or the Mellow Yellow (that is not so mellow) with spicy tuna and shrimp tempura, topped with kampachi, avocado and sauce. Heat lovers will be drawn to the Flaming Lip, a tempura-fried California roll with cream cheese, spicy mayo, jalapeño and sriracha. Diners can explore a nice variety of sakés; try the Hakushika ginjo hot saké if you don’t know where to begin. Nightly DJs and a late-night social hour add to the hip vibe. Also located at 301 Mission Ave., Oceanside, 760-967-1820.
