And the award for Best Lobster Bisque goes to...

J.L. | Sep 16, 2007 10:00 PM

Bar Hayama... (The previous owner of this honor was Hotel Bel Air.)

We went to Bar Hayama last Friday night for the first time - it's a very handsome space, very well-proportioned. Definitely a step up in the decor from Sushi Sasabune (the previous occupant). The firepit on the patio is cozy and inviting.

But on to the lobster bisque... Wow! Just the right consistency and flavor. And HUGE pieces of lobster tail. Deelish. Service was polite and attentive. The joint was jumpin' by 7:30PM - a good sign.

The rest of the menu was quite good as well. We'll be back!
