Hana Japanese Eatery
This busy, family-owned operation north of Seventh and Missouri avenues is overseen by co-owners Lynn Becker and Chef Lori Hashimoto, a true treasure of the Phoenix chef scene. The place is known for well-crafted sushi and sashimi — yellowtail, tuna, salmon, crab, albacore, and whitefish. We like the squid maruyaki, scallop edamame kasane age, Hana tempura, and various bento box lunch options. Hana does not accept reservations, so diners may have a bit of a wait at peak times. Hana Japanese Eatery was formerly, and famously, BYOB. But the menu has recently expanded to include a selection of Japanese craft beers, sake, whiskey, cocktails, and wine.
