Hidden Fish Has Arrived
I haven’t been this excited about a new restaurant opening in San Diego in a while. Sushi is one of the few types of food I’d happily eat every night! While there is no shortage of great sushi places, Hidden Fish raises the bar with its authentic Japanese style timed dining. Executive Sushi Chef and owner John Hong (Chef Kappa) offers “timed dining” where he and his team create daily menus, allowing guests to try a variety of sushi pieces and taste new combinations. Omakase, a phrase which translates directly to ‘I’ll leave it up to you,’ is a traditional Japanese style of dining where patrons place their full trust in the chef to present innovative and delicious dishes. With only 13 seats, Hidden Fish truly is San Diego’s most intimate dining experience. Eight spots are dedicated to guests who opt to savor the 30-minute, 12-piece Omakase Teaser for $50, and the remaining five seats for a 90-minute Omakase Premium experience, which includes 18 pieces for $90. Before or after a meal, diners are also invited to relax in the lounge for a glass of beer, wine or sake. The lounge is standing-room only and reflects the intimacy of the sushi bar.
