It's late but a quick note. Just went to a new Asian restaurant Beacon opened up by Kazuto Matsusaka formerly of Spago and Chinoise located across from the Jazz Bakery (Helms).
If you are in the area, the fresh fish and asian combinations should not be missed. Great appetizers such as Crispy Oysters in lettuce cups, chicken wings and pork skewers were gobbled up by our group.
Great sake selection as well as a small but well chosen wine list (no corkage if wine purchased from list).
We will be back for more soon.
