Between 8 and 20 students attend sushi-making classes, which take place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and reservation is required. For catering packages, hosts pick one traditional bowl—which comes with a half pan each of vegetables, protein, and rice or noodles—from the catering menu, or one sushi tray. Each package is good for game days, meetings, parties, and other events, and each can serve 8 or 16 people.<p>
Genki Noodles & Sushi
Named after the Japanese word for happy, Genki Noodles & Sushi captures the feel-good delicacies enjoyed by owner Reid Zeising during his childhood in Tokyo. Reid now oversees three locations that dish out a signature menu of traditional and experimental sushi rolls, tuna specialties, and Japanese barbecue bowls packed with grilled meats or tofu mixed with noodles or rice. In many dishes, classic flavors of spicy tuna and fresh water eel mingle with unusual additions such as parmesan cheese or mango.
Though each location sports its own distinct décor, all three locations glow under flat screen TVs and the blue light of fish tanks populated by ocean critters and a merman trapped in the body of a hermit crab. The Virginia Highlands location mingles exposed brick with a covered outdoor patio replete with breezy fans.
