A tablehopper tipster called me last week to let me know the new (and second) location of ~HANA ZEN SUSHI & YAKITORI GRILL~ at PIER 39 is quite the looker, with an amazing view of the water, and yakitori items grilled on imported bincho-tan charcoal (it’s also the first sushi restaurant on the pier). The kitchen is committed to using quality ingredients, like free-range chicken and daily delivered seafood. The space is 4,555 square feet, and features a lounge, sake tasting room, and a full sushi bar. And score, there’s validated parking. This is the second restaurant for owner Angie Louie. Open Mon-Thu 11am-10pm, Fri-Sat 11am-10:30pm. Pier 39, 415-421-8822.
