Despites better instincts I finally went to the newish Hanami on 6th Ave. Someone had implied it was some sort of Blue Ribbon bargain alternative. Unfortunately everything I tried was universally awful. The Chicken shogoyaki o-bento was overcooked and flavor free. Maki showed no promise whatsoever either. The whole place with their encyclopedic menu of all of the Japanese american hits seems more like a Chinese devised Japanese themed restaurant.
Those seeking caringly prepared Japanese food should look elsewhere. I'd sooner go to Miyagi.
