In a not-quite-finished, but also kind of pleasant mixed-use development at 7th and Flower, Hatch is a jumble of concepts. Up front, they have a build-your-own bento box counter, where you can get three yakitori sticks on top of rice or salad, add some vegetables, and end up with a pretty solid meal for $11. At the back of the space is a full-service restaurant, with the same yakitori options, plus sashimi dishes and larger entrees, and drinks. We’d recommend you go the bento box route - the restaurant is expensive, and you have to order a lot to end up full. But if you work nearby, this is a great affordable lunch option.
