Haiku in Chapaqua and Salsa Fresca in Bedford Hills

Wingsjunkie Jan 15, 2011 06:17 AM

Ttwo things I'm curious about
1) Has anyone tried what I am guessing is Haiku in chappaqua? I think it's opened and i wonder how it compares to the other 100 asian fusion restaurants in the area.

2) Has anyone been to/heard anything about Salsa Fresca that is opening near the bagel place in bedford hills?

    Well I ordered some rolls from Kira in Chappaqua last night.
    And it was perfectly acceptable and reasonably priced.

    I would not order uni, saba or mirugai but the tuna, yellowtail/scallion and unagi/cucumber rolls were pretty good. The nori even had a bit of bite.

      I don't think all the Haiku's are the same. Somehow, the original in Bronxville has the best service and environment. Pleasant place, a little different from the other "Asian Fusion" places in the county.

      Although the food at Wild Ginger, Bronxville and Watermoon, Rye, rocks! (same management.)

        Is it worth my time and money to try Haiku? I go to daido and make my own sushi and maki.
        My negi toro maki is killer.
        Is there anything there worth paying for?

          Haiku is a chaine restaurant. They are all over Westchester. They deliver. I would not go out of my way to eat there.

            The restaurant that opened in the former Takiyama in Chappaqua is Kira Sushi - ended up not being Haiku. Kira also has locations in Armonk and Greenwich.

            Have not been to Haiku in Chappaqua, but Haiku is Haiku. They are all the same.
