I had lunch today with an old girlfriend ("P") at the new Hatsune in the Kerry Center. There's a room in the very back of the restaurant which is isolated, i.e., private (though noisy), and that's where we sat. I hated her new eyeglasses ("But they're from Tiffany!"), which I thought made her look like an old librarian, and certainly not a naughty librarian, which is the kind I like.
We each got a box set lunch (not interesting to photograph) and supplemented them with an order of "LumDimSum" rolls. They come in a dim sum steamer basket which is a cute touch. LumDimSum is a popular blog, mainly about food, and her local restaurant recommendations are frequently spot on (meaning I agree with her).
The inside of the roll has scallops, albacore tuna, seaweed, and cucumber and the top has avocado, maguro, and a spot of mayo? with black tobiko. Maybe you can see all of that better in the pic below. I think the rolls were around US$14.
Hatsune is a rock-solid old stand-by restaurant. The Chinese-American owner must be making a fortune, deserved of course. Check it out if you haven't been before.
