Two More Haiku Bistros Opening: One in Eastchester, One in Chappaqua


The Haiku empire keeps growing. The Pan-Asian restaurant mini-chain, which has four outposts now — Bronxville, Cross River, White Plains and Mamaroneck — will expand to include restaurants in Eastchester (next to Old Navy, across from Lord & Taylor on Route 22) and Chappaqua (at 95 King St., where Takayama used to be).

Expect the same mix of dishes from all over Asia: sushi, creative rolls, Pad Thai, Malaysian Curry and Vietnamese spring rolls. And though so far, each Haiku looks a little bit different, you can also expect a hip environment, with dim lights, stone, cool neon accents and possibly a water feature.
