Williamsburg folks near the Lorimer stop have a new pan-Asian option in Hachi Asian Bistro, which opened last week. The space has Buddha statues, Asian prints on distressed cement walls, and two chandeliers built from dark-colored glass bottles. One owner is Eric Ong, of Nana in Park Slope, and specialty rolls like the bullet — shrimp tempura with avocado and spicy garlic-chile sauce — share space on the menu with a mix of curry, noodle, and sauté dishes, plus some oddities like a sushi pizza and King Crab fajitas. Hours are Monday through Friday 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. and weekends from noon to 11 p.m. A full liquor license kicks in next week.
