Sushi House Hayakawa Restaurant Review: Atsushi "Art" Hayakawa's tiny slip of an establishment employs two artful sushi chefs, one obviously the master. Whether you're a habitué or a newcomer, Hayakawa extends the same warmth and attention. A daily special menu details dishes like bitter melon sautéed with egg. While there are cooked preparations, sushi is the draw. If you're tired of goofy combos masquerading as sushi here's where you want to raise your chopsticks. Pristine scallop splayed along a neatly mounded bit of sushi rice tastes like it just left the Sea of Japan. Wild-caught salmon from Canada and Japanese red snapper may be treated to a torch application that slightly cooks the top of the fish while leaving the rest raw. Rolls are not only imaginative but retain the pure flavors of the seafood from which they're made, such as lobster topped with masago caviar. Skip the mediocre wine list in favor of excellent saké and beers from Japan, including Asahi on draft.
