    Opened during the pandemic, there doesn't seem to be a thread yet so here are some thoughts!
    Otto Phan is meticulous. We have really enjoyed Kyoten and were eager to check out Hinoki. I hope others will give it a chance.
    Earlier this fall we dined in the downstairs izakaya, which was all very delicious. But this week we finally made it to the upstairs omakase. It was downright luscious. 15 pieces (generously size) of standards like toro, chutoro, otoro, sea bream, hamachi, alongside some more unusual offerings like steelhead trout. Very flavorful rice. Expert staff.
    Personally I did notice the complete lack of vegetables - no pickles or gomae or seaweed or eggplant to round out the courses. But I realize that may not be the opinion of sushi purists.
    The fish and preparation were outstanding. Really exceeding pretty much any other omakase we've had in town (and we try to get to them all) except Kyoten itself.
