Foursquare Tips

  • The menu is certainly a daily-changing moving target, and it does kick off with 10 or so options for nigiri and sashimi, reflecting the most sterling seafood that Tien, who runs the kitchen, can find.
  • Japanese inspired dishes and creative cocktails with unique spirits. Loved the eggplant and karaage / fried chicken. Want to try to the buffalo wing next time. Drop by at 5:30 to put ur name in
  • Incredible dining experience in an intimate space with an ever-changing menu. Portion size is fab. Dishes have clever touches of Japanese influence. Great cocktails, vermouth, wines. Amazing service.
  • One of my favorite meals in DC! The menu changes often, but the brioche toast topped with uni+ikura+perfectly scrambled eggs was mindblowing. Also highly recommend the nori-infused white rum cocktail!
  • Just fantastic. Cold dishes ftw
  • Top notch sushi... really fine fish. No traditional rolls
  • Delicious! If you can, sit at the bar which is essentially the chefs table. Get the Squash, Cornmeal Oysters, Fried Chicken, Tuna and Watermelon!!
  • Yes, theres a solid selection of nigiri and sashimi for thosewhowant to play it safe, but we recommend headingfor more unfamiliar territorylike uni paired with Alabama white sauce.
  • There is no wrong answer on this multiple choice menu! The oysters, heirloom tomatoes+strawberries, hamachi+orenji, karaage+biscuits, selection of rose and cocktails made for a delightful dinner.
  • One of the best meals I've ever had in DC!
  • Awesome little sushi place
  • The Kampachi Togarashi is stellar!
  • Get the karaage: buttermilk-brined fried chicken dredged like Japanese-style karaage and served with Korean gochujang glaze, house pickles and Kewpie mayo.
  • Best restaurant I've been to in D.C. This year ! Everything is amazing, but the Sakanah toh kokonattsu (yellowtail) stands out. Perfect cocktails ! Try the old Cuban and salt + pepper singani
  • Amazing food. Menu changes daily and is easily the best spot to dine in Petworth.
