Modern Japanese cuisine meets the season’s boldest ingredients
Haru is debuting contemporary Japanese specials that showcase the bold tastes of the season. Beginning October 13, Haru will dish out a beet-laced sushi roll and flavorful salad as well as an entrée rooted in comfort. Additionally, Haru will shake up two cocktails that are classics reinvented.
- Wakame-Beet Salad ($12) is a bright and tangy mix of gold and red beets, vitamin-rich Ito Wakame and green onion finished in a lemon vinaigrette with a pinch of salt, black pepper and pistachio nuts. Keeping in Haru’s tradition of creating some of the most unique sushi rolls around
- Golden Beet Roll ($17) layers nori, avocado, yellowtail and golden beets inside sushi rice. The roll is sprinkled with crushed pistachios and sesame seeds, served alongside a red beet sauce, wasabi and ginger. Moving onto the entrée
- Ra-Yu Short Rib ($23) starts with braised beef short rib in a succulent jus that is piled high with a daikon, green onion and carrot salad, topped with sesame seeds and Ra-Yu sesame oil.
From the bar, Haru will offer creative twists on two classics ($7.50 each):
- Black Cherry Manhattan is a play on the iconic 19th century cocktail with Nikka whiskey, Cherry Heering liqueur and Angostura bitters that is served straight up in a martini glass.
- Cucumber Gimlet, a combination of muddled fresh cucumber, lime and cilantro shaken with homemade simple syrup and the 34-times-distilled Purity vodka.
