Recent Fargo, N.D., transplant Jin Myung opened a new restaurant on the former site of Hannah’s, 1050 S. Rampart Blvd., in February. But she kept the Asian fusion menu, executive chef and decor.
The biggest change — the name Sea Stone — focuses attention not only on the source of most of the menu, but on the water gushing down a wall, under the floor and even into the enclosed Plexiglas interior of a dinner table. (Incidentally, if you point to one of the 11 koi swimming under the entranceway and order sushi, it won’t be the first time your host has heard that joke.)
Chef Derek Kinoshita’s signature dish is potato-crusted salmon with sauteed vegetables ($21).
The restaurant seats 371. Hours are from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 to 11 p.m. daily.
Reservations are preferred, but not necessary.
