Opened two weeks ago, noticed it Thursday, located in the strip mall with Mitsuwa. Simple menu specializing in boiled or fried gyoza (four stuffing choices), buns, a couple rice plates, two soups, and some salads and appetizers. The tables are set with vinegar cruets and crushed garlic in condiment pots. The name "hana" means flower and is also the name of the owners' daughter.
My sushi benefactor happened to call me yesterday. I asked him about it since he lives a few blocks away. He sighed and said, "Hmm, it seems you're spending more time than I thought in my neighborhood yet I don't get to see you. Was going to tell you about it, it's only been open a few days. It's owned by the Sushi Tomi/Maru Ichi people."
I had other plans and didn't get to try it myself. The owners' other restaurants have been good and reliable, so I'm looking forward to trying this one too. Hope to see some chowhound reports soon.
