- The lounge at street level is the restaurant's focal point, filled out with small Mexican-style shaker tables crafted in Guadalajara and Japanese bathing stools
- The ten seat ground-level sushi bar, made from cypress wood
- A smaller tequila-and-sake bar (made from elm) seats five; it's on the left here.
- tequila and sake abound
- Upstairs, a 16-seat communal table, surrounded by Japanese movie prints on the walls.
We know Joseph Manzare for lusty works like Italian Zuppa, Mexican Tres Agaves (also, the late Pescheria and Joey & Eddy's RIP); and now he's bringing us a little bit of Japan and Mexico by way of Hecho, which really should be something else. A closet Japan-o-phile, Manzare brought on chef Masaki Sasaki from 2G Japanese Brasserie to oversee a menu of authentic Tokyo-style sushi and robata grilled dishes. See a sample menu here. Impressive line-ups of tequila (Manzare's other love) and sake (SFoodie's got the deets) shall compliment the eats. Alcohol options continue into Mexican and Japanese beers on-tap, tequila and sake cocktails and the first SF appearance of One Cup Sake, a 7 oz. cup of sake served in a disposable glass often found in vending machines in Japan. Jim Zack has done a rather impressive remodel of the former Midi space. So do take a look in the gallery here. Since it's all newly at your disposal tomorrow for dinner tomorrow at 5 p.m.; we're expecting early reports in the comments and a here.
