2309 Wisconsin Ave. N.W., Washington, DC 20007

Billed as the first sushi bar in Washington, D.C., this tiny Glover Park hole-in-the-wall makes up for its lack of ambiance with a menu of fresh, skillfully prepared seafood. The dining room is sparsely furnished with light wood chairs and worn blue carpet, focusing attention instead on the 16-seat sushi bar. In addition to traditional sushi and sashimi, such as the soft shell crab uramaki (inside-out roll) with avocado and sesame sauce, the chefs also prepare small plates like grilled baby octopus in mango sauce. Dishes are paired with sake or, in an unusual twist, a selection of Burgundy wines.
