About
Eagerly anticipated in 7x7, Joseph Manzare’s sushi and tequila bar combines the chef and restaurateur’s love of Japan and the Mexican highlands in an eclectic, informal setting. Culinary artistes sculpt a menu full of delicate nigiri ($3–$5/piece) and intricate rolls ($5–7/piece) behind a thick wooden sushi bar modeled after those visited by Manzare in his Tokyo travels. Sample a plate of himalayan hamachi ($14)—hamachi suffused with lemon oil and garnished with candied jalapeños—or ask about the restaurant’s negi hamachi makimono roll ($7), which wears its scallions on its sleeve to conceal a tender interior of yellowtail and a secret passion for modern dance. American Wagyu beef tri-tip skewers ($8 each) cook to succulent perfection on the restaurant’s traditional Japanese charcoal grill.
