Shrug off temps that force you to wear a North Face over your North Face with one of Haru's just-unveiled concoctions like the tropical coconut and pineapple rum-mixed Mikayo Islander and their special take on the whisky smash that's been dubbed the... wait for it... Ichiban Whisky Smash (!!!), and is billed as a "cross between a whisky sour and a mint julep", and which, in Japanese, humbly means "The Best".
Chain darling Haru Sushi’s Back Bay location offers all of the usual sushi, sashimi suspects, alongside an extensive selection of high-quality Japanese sides. The menu is comprised of salads, soups, hot entrees (try the Crispy Duck with ginger-scallion pancakes and black plum hoisin), and specialty rolls, like the Boston Uncommon, with crunchy spicy salmon, tuna, avocado, mango black tobiko, and gold lead (only available at the Boston location, so Haru snobs, you most definitely have a reason to come here). The restaurant’s cocktail concoction highlights include fun, fruity options -- like the tropical Svedka Mango-Pineapple and hibiscus syrup-mixed Tiki Taki Martini -- to bolster its colorful and fresh array of sushi and seafood.
