Sushiko, the first sushi shack in the D.C. area, serves a full menu of maki, salads, and sashimi based on a minimalistic approach, ensuring each ingredient's flavor naturally shines through. Start with a bowl of wild-mushroom soup ($6.50), or a ginger-dressed sushi-ko salad ($6). Maki offerings, served in six pieces or temaki cone, are a treasure trove of sea meat. Try the crunchy shrimp with fish roe, shrimp, scallions, mayo, and tempura batter ($5), or the rainbow roll with salmon, shrimp, white fish, cucumber, avocado, and tuna ($12.50). Small dishes such as the honey-soy roasted duck breast ($9.50), and seared lobster with forest mushrooms, spinach, and creamy ponzu ($11), appease the anti-rawist and stand tall amid the simple, modern interior. For entree-like eats, order an entree, such as the roasted Maine salmon sided with sweet potato and sautéed mushrooms ($16.50), or beef-tenderloin tataki doused with red-wine daikon butter ($20).
