Japanese food is as much about the presentation as it is about the flavors presented. And while the strip mall that’s home to Hana Matsuri Sushi doesn’t look like much, inside the elegant restaurant looks almost like a furniture showroom, with a sushi bar that’s an actual bar. Steve and Jessie Liu, who opened the superb Land of Sushi in the southern suburbs back in 2000, opened Hana Matsuri ten years later so that hungry diners in the northern suburbs could have an authentic sushi experience. And while the decor may not be traditional, the sushi chefs here are dedicated to providing stellar sushi. The best way to experience their skills might be with the chirashi, sashimi and nigiri, although the occasional departures into fusion can also produce worthy results.
