At the recently re-opened BaiKu Sushi Lounge, newly appointed executive chef Eliott Harris is rolling out his take on the concept with a focus on freshness. As reported by Feast last month, the Midtown sushi restaurant originally opened in Hotel Ignacio in October 2014 and closed in January due to construction on the building. It reopened on April 26 under new leadership with an updated menu.

Harris previously served as the executive chef of BaiKu owner Brad Beracha’s now-shuttered restaurant, Miso. His 20 years of experience behind a sushi bar also includes owning sushi-centric food truck, Chop Shop STL, and serving as the sushi consultant for Central Table Food Hall.

Former food truck sushi chef Elliot Harris has found a new, more stationary home. Harris, who sold Chop Shop STL in December 2015, is now executive sushi chef at Baiku Sushi Lounge in Midtown.

Baiku owner Brad Beracha said Harris actually joined the restaurant in January, but the announcement was postponed while Baiku temporarily closed its doors that month so Hotel Ignacio (located in the same building) addressed structural problems in the building. Beracha said Harris used that time to tweak the sushi menu. Repairs are made and Baiku will reopen for dinner next Tuesday, April 26 and lunch on May 3. The restaurant will be closed on Sundays.

Owner Brad Beracha tells Feast that BaiKu will reopen next Tue., April 26, and chef Eliott Harris will be taking the reins. Harris is a St. Louis native and a skilled sushi chef – local diners might recognize him from his work as executive chef at the now-shuttered Miso, sushi consultant for Central Table Food Hall or owner of Chop Shop STL, the sushi-centric food truck he closed in December.

Hotels at one time were the epicenter of fine dining and drinking. When visiting a new city, a traveler was well-advised to find a quality hotel if he or she desired to have the best meal in town. This still is the case in some high-end hotels around St. Louis, like the boutique Hotel Ignacio in Midtown.

Poke (po-KAY), the Hawaiian staple, is finally gaining in popularity on the mainland. BaiKu’s version is worthy, with both a nod toward the traditional and some innovative twists. Cubes of fresh ruby-dark tuna are splashed with soy sauce and tossed with green onions, sea salt, chopped napa cabbage, and nibbles of bright Japanese chilies. It’s a salad—with a bowl of rice alongside—that’s substantial enough for a full meal with all the beautiful taste of the ocean.
