Haru Restaurant Review

: This bi-level spot in Gramercy Park offers a wide range of sushi options as well as Japanese classics. Sip one of the house cocktails --- first-timers should try the green tea margarita --- or a glass of saké and munch on complex, packed rolls and simple but flavorful sushi. The Gramercy Park roll is albacore and jalapeño wrapped with more albacore and salmon and topped with lemon, cilantro and tobiko. It offers a lovely textural crunch as well as fresh taste. Non sushi lovers might enjoy the long list of dishes that includes crispy duck and spicy filet mignon. At Sunday brunch, feast on a few breakfast-y selections, such as the smoked salmon roll and the very good pork belly bun.
