More than a decade ago, serious sushi lovers flocked to Koto, a little hole-in-the-wall south of downtown, to partake of the artistry of chef-owner Hajima Keruma. Sometimes he rewarded their loyalty by creating special rolls just for them. One menu staple is the Wayne Roll, consisting of eel, crabstick, burdock, avocado and a special secret sauce; it’s named for DreamWorks Records exec Wayne Halper. The current Koto is in larger, fancier digs downtown, but each and every piece of sushi and sashimi created under Haji’s flying fingers is still given the same studious, workmanlike attention.
