Harlan Goldstein, the most famous celebrity chef in Hong Kong, held a soft opening on May 9th for a new Japanese restaurant, Sushi To (address: 29/F, Soundwill Plaza II Midtown,1-29 Tung Lung Street, Causeway Bay). Located on the 29th floor of Midtown, a new commercial multiplex in Causeway Bay, the restaurant primarily serves sushi and sashimi.

Sushi To has a floor space of 6,800 square feet. Some of the 96 seats in the main dining section face Victoria Harbour. There are also two private rooms accommodating up to 10 guests. A sushi counter and teppanyaki counter are placed near the entrance on each side. A panoramic view of the harbor spreads out in front of the bar.

Sushi To uses fresh ingredients shipped daily from Japan. Customers can order single-serving sashimi and nigirizushi such as the "fresh fish sashimi three-piece platter" (HK$320) and the "eight-piece same fish platter" (HK$780). The menu also includes creative dishes such as the "seaweed-wrapped red sea bream, myoga ginger and tosazu jelly" (HK$78 for two pieces) and "roasted Kagoshima wagyu with wasabi and Kinzo-ji soy sauce" (HK$188 for two pieces). The size of the sushi is petit, like that eaten at sushi restaurants in Japan.

Goldstein says he wants Sushi To's cuisine to be termed contemporary Japanese dining rather than a fad. He has always had a penchant for Japanese food and has wanted to open a Japanese restaurant for many years now. Norihisa Maeda is Goldstein's right-hand man and is in charge of running the kitchen. Goldstein places great trust in him. "So long as I have Maeda, I feel that he will give my ideas form." Maeda has collaborated with Goldstein on designing the menu and more.

Business hours are 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. for lunch and 6:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. for dinner (until 11:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays).
