Chef and owner Atsushi “Art” Hayakawa of the venerable Sushi Hayakawa on Buford Highway is utilizing a ticketed reservation system now for his restaurant.

The restaurant uses reservation management system Tock, and will include an epic omakase tasting menu limited to one party of two per night.

Hayakawa is calling his new, prepaid omakase “honkaku”—which translates to “full-scale”.

The two-and-a-half hour, $185 per person honkaku omakase is a one-on-one, 14-course sushi extravaganza with the chef. For the omakase, Hayakawa will serve some of the restaurant’s most popular items, and will also order fish specifically for the tasting menu. A beverage pairing option of premium, private cellar sakes will cost an additional $80 per person.

Seatings for the private sushi meal begin at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and at 4:30 p.m on Sundays. In addition to Hayakawa’s new omakase, a limited daily tasting menu is offered at the sushi counter.

Sushi Hayakawa’s large communal table is no longer available for reservations. Parties of five or more people must email the restaurant to reserve a table. The restaurant still accepts walk-ins, however, that is likely to change soon, too.

Reservations necessary for the two-person honkaku omakase and highly encouraged for the sushi counter and a table through Tock.
