Hot Plates | December 22, 2008

Palate feeling a little cluttered with egg nog, champagne and party treats? Take a break from excess with a dish of pure, cool protein—like Hajime’s clean and refreshing tuna tartare. This ruby bite offers gemlike tuna, chopped and tossed with the tasty punctuation of scallions and crunchy pine nuts. Light, bright and easy on the palate — a few more dishes like this, and you’ll be ready for New Year’s.
