The Octopus Restaurant Group of Los Angeles, with over 20 restaurants in their inspired award winning collection, has formally debuted its newest sushi restaurant, H2O Sushi & Izakaya in San Diego on Fifth Avenue in Hillcrest. The Japanese gastropub is located in the space formerly occupied by D-Bar, at 3950 Fifth Avenue, between University and Washington.
The H2O menu incorporates traditional Japanese flavor into modern presentation, including a Japanese take on carpaccio, fresh seasonal oysters, and an array of small plates made with fresh fish and local produce and inspired by traditional Japanese cuisine.
Through the contemporary décor and comforting atmosphere, H2O is dedicated to provide a dining experience that is unparalleled in its kind. The Japanese gastropub’s new home features fresh white decor with blue LED lighting and vaulted ceilings, with huge hanging metal curtains reflecting sunlight during the day and restaurant lighting in evening; adding to an upbeat dining experience. Upon entering H2O Sushi & Izakaya, guests will be visually greeted by an enormous projection screen displaying a wide variety of spectacular scenes from picturesque locations throughout San Diego. The fun and friendly atmosphere of the 23-seat sushi bar has made H2O an experience that inspires guests to return again and again.
H2O’s drink menu boasts a premiere selection of 12 and 18 year old Japanese Whisky flights, cocktails, and of course sake bombs priced at only $2 at happy hour. The sushi bar features not one, but two happy hour times: from 3pm-6pm daily and again for their signature reverse happy hour Sunday through Thursday from 9pm-closing. H2O boasts of becoming the “watering hole” of Hillcrest!
H2O is determined to become Hillcrest’s newest and most delicious culinary experience that is mouth watering in more ways than one. The restaurant opened to the public in late July.
