When discussing Washington DC sushi restaurants, there’s at least one name that always comes up: Sushi Taro. Built around chef-curated, multi-course “kaiseki” meals, this authentic eatery was named the city’s “most alluring Japanese restaurant” by The Washington Post and ranks in the top tier of restaurants on Zagat. But there are a slew of other great sushi restaurants in DC, of course. Take, for example, Kaz Sushi Bistro, where Nagoya-born chef Kazuhiro Okochi pairs sushi with imported and house-made soy sauces. There’s also Kotobuki, a cozy, much-loved sushi spot nestled away in a homey brick edifice.
