Having opened in August, H2O Sushi & Izakaya already has Hillcrest hooked. Fresh fish and impeccable service are the name of the game at this Japanese gastropub on Fifth Avenue, where highly trained chefs rely on traditional principles to create modern delicacies. H2O Sushi & Izakaya’s menu offerings include a Japanese take on carpaccio, seasonal varieties of oysters as well as an amazing array of small plates made with local meats and produce. The restaurant’s beverage program spotlights 18-year-old Japanese whiskeys, inventive paired cocktails and ever-popular Sake Bombs (which are two bucks apiece during happy hour). The expansive realm H2O Sushi & Izakaya calls home is pure white except for blue-neon accents that create a cooler-than-life dining experience. For delectable Japanese fusion cuisine, exquisite décor and a new take on the catch of the day, visit H2O Sushi & Izakaya, which promises to be mouthwatering in more ways than one.
