Lafayette has played home to Philip Yang’s award winning, Blue Gingko Sushi for over ten years. In that time, Blue Gingko has established itself as THE destination for anyone in the mood for Japanese food, dine in or take out. Though Blue Gingko offers the highest quality fish and most original sushi rolls in the area, it’s become a neighborhood favorite because of its inviting atmosphere and friendly staff. It’s that family friendly, neighborhood feel that we aim to replicate in Danville.
In March of 2010, Philip’s second project, Sasa Izakaya opened its doors. In the short time Sasa Izakaya has been in operation, its received a Michelin Star recommendation, Best Sushi in Walnut Creek 2010, Top ten restaurants in the East Bay 2011, a cover feature in Diablo Magazine, and is host to the 17th best bite (out of 101) in the Bay Area. Sasa has been an outstanding success and what’s made it such a hit is its great food, an amazing bar program, an unparalleled staff, and the best interior design and ambiance around. Blue Gingko at Blackhawk will be an artful blend of the two restaurants that has made Philip and his collaborators so successful.
Blue Gingko at Blackhawk offers a full bar with artisanal Asian inspired cocktails, an eclectic beer and wine program, and the best sushi and Japanese fare in the area, all at an accessible and affordable price. Come dine in our completely redesigned restaurant, the expanded patio, or take Blue Gingko home, our entire menu is available for take out.
