Hasu Asian Bistro & Sushi Opens In Cherry Creek North

When East Asia Garden closed earlier this year on South Broadway, we were saddened by the loss of one of the most unique and in-depth Chinese menus in town. Along with stellar barbecue duck and a standard range from the American-Chinese culinary canon, East Asia Garden had built a reputation for more obscure -- to the Western palate -- dishes like tofu with black eggs, cross bridge noodles and pig's ears with cucumber. A sign quickly went up though, announcing that the restaurant was actually moving and getting a new name. And now the new place, Hasu Asian Bistro & Sushi, is open in Cherry Creek North, in a lower-level space that has had its share of closings over the years.

The new menu is a little more international, featuring a wide range of Japanese appetizers and sushi and a short list of Thai curries in addition to Chinese standards. Those cross bridge rice noodles are still on the list and there's a longer menu of other rarer finds, so despite the move and name change, there's still hope that those traditional northeast Chinese specialties have not been watered down.

Hasu is open Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 10 p.m.
