Hooked sits in the heart of Beaver Creek Village, and although the restaurant is nowhere near an ocean, its entire menu is right out of the water. The New Zealand Pink Sea Bream is known in the sushi world as “N.Z. tai,” and “tai” in Japanese means “good fortune,” so the fish is often served there at celebratory feasts. Hooked Chef and Owner, Riley Romanin, says the fish is always flown fresh to Hooked straight from New Zealand, and is prepared half cooked and half raw, so a guest can get a chance to appreciate the flavors of the fish in both styles.
