GREENFIELD — A new sign and new name will soon greet customers at Greenfield’s Haru Hana Hibachi Steakhouse, but owner Li Liu said no dramatic changes are in the offing, only improvements.

Haru Hana, which opened its doors in the Brandywine Plaza in 2010, will carry Liu’s “Wasabi” brand, after her Wasabi on 82nd restaurant that has built a loyal following in Indianapolis over the last five years.

Liu purchased Haru Hana from owner Ndu Li on Jan. 1.

She plans to continue and expand the restaurant’s hibachi area, much to the satisfaction of longtime Haru Hana customers, she says, and grow the sushi menu by incorporating specials and offerings from her Indianapolis store.
