Now Serving – Hirosaki Prime

By Rachel Shuster

Located at 1121 Grafton Street in Worcester, Hirosaki Prime, opened late this past summer, is a top notch Japanese steakhouse and sushi bar.

Hirosaki Prime’s menu ranges from appetizers to sushi to Hibachi items. Prices range from a $2.99 bowl of soup to the delectable $42.99 plate of prime filet and lobster tail. The lounge area also offers a majority of the same items, plus chicken, beef and seafood dinners ~ all in the same price range.

John McHugh and his wife Liz are co-owners and describe their restaurant as unique. “Our service is 5-star, our layout, design and decor create an ambiance that far exceeds any Japanese steakhouse and sushi bar on the east coast and the quality of meats and seafood we use are the best money can buy. We also are the only restaurant in the city that has wagyu beef on the menu,” McHugh says.

Hirosaki Prime also offers a full bar with house cocktails, an extensive wine list and traditional Japanese sake.

McHugh adds, “Our kitchen hours are Tues – Fri 4pm -10pm and now we’re open starting at 11:30am on Sat and Sun. We will be closed on Mondays.”
