Fodor's Review

Touted as the city's best Japanese restaurant, Hanabishi sits in slightly seedy King Street, an area known for its bars, club venues, and occasionally unsavory clientele. With wooden floors, blue walls, and traditional ceramic serving trays, Hanabishi is the playground of Osakan chef Akio Soga, whose seasonal menu includes such gems as oven-grilled Patagonian toothfish wrapped in aromatic cedar wood. There are long lists of hot and chilled sake and wines, ranging from

reasonable to pricey. The bento boxes, which are culinary works of art, feature sought-after Wagyu beef and are a favorite with the lunchtime crowd.
