Meet Master Sushi Chef Hiroyuki Fujino From Five Sixty

by Steven Doyle

What are great qualities of a sushi chef? Amiable, imaginative and raw talent are a few things that come to mind. Certainly these words all hold true when describing Master Sushi Chef Hiroyuki “Fuji” Fujino.  We might toss in charming for good measure, and perhaps when we sup on the omakase at Five Sixty atop the tower at the Hyatt downtown the master might toss an extra morsel of the good stuff our way.

Omakase is when you trust your sushi chef to plan your meal for you in place of ordering ala carte. You will find the chef more giving in his rarer stock with more visits when the chef starts trusting your palate as much as you trust that he will prepare something hopefully more rare than those around you. This is a tasting menu with few rules.             Continue reading

Five Sixty Introduces New Brunch

by Steven Doyle

Yesterday Five Sixty  by Wolfgang Puck had a media gathering to show off their new brunch menu. You know how much we appreciate our brunches, and this is pretty much a table full of fun. Think dim sum meets breakfast. The brunch is made up of plenty of tastes just as you would find in a traditional dim sum setting. However, instead of trucking around your meal in a metal cart the dishes are prepared and brought to your table as they are prepared. This means the dishes will be staggered, keeping everything fresh.

The menu is bright, and the word fun comes to mind as you will agree when you see chef Pat Robertson has planned for your visit. You may buy the dishes individually, or you can choose 5 tastes for $32 or 8 for $42.      Continue reading

Puck’s restaurant in Dallas, Five Sixty, is pretty special in the fact it has one amazing sushi bar that is helmed by long time Puck employee Chef Hiroyuki Fujino who serves Omakase-Style.        Continue reading
