Located in Costa Mesa, the Hamamori Restaurant and Lounge is a fine dining experience for modern Japanese fusion cuisine. James Hamamori, who is known in OC for Sushi restaurants, has created a contemporary ambience at the eatery with its undulating white walls, crystal chandeliers, cream-colored chairs and turquoise and chrome accents. Regulars sit down at the ten-seat sushi bar to enjoy super-fresh sushi prepared by three chefs who shout their welcomes and drink with their customers. But if you have come here for a fusion feast, then claim a comfortable table and sit down for an extravaganza. Start off by pairing a premium saké or white wine with the refreshing halibut carpaccio, which comes with a slightly astringent pomegranate reduction. Or, begin with the crunchy and tender okaki-coated jumbo asparagus, which you dip in yuzu sea salt. Dont miss the tangy tamari-marinated black cod dish or the crisp-skinned madai with its accompanying salty and rich consommé. Hamamori obviously appreciates European cuisine as is evidenced in his tender Kobe beef medallion, which comes topped with a thin slice of caramelized Fuji apple and seared foie gras surrounded by bits of dried fruit and a plum wine reduction.
