Located in West Midtown, Hayakawa is an intimate and traditional omakase style sushiya. Featuring a live edge sycamore wood slab as its center and solid wood detailing throughout, the millwork by Skylar Morgan was artfully built to reflect traditional Japanese joinery. We worked closely with Chef Hayakawa, a James Beard Award semifinalist, and his longtime friend and interior architect, Hiro Isogai, to ensure the design and custom detailing were authentic and skillfully crafted. The black and white marble slabs bring in an element of high contrast to set the stage for Hayakawa to showcase his talents. The dining experience is all about the intimate connection between him and his guests as he prepares each course. Moody lighting, lush draperies, and Shu shogi ban wood flooring all work together to create an ambiance that transports you to Tokyo.
