Sushi Taro, this Japanese restaurant is quite famous in Washington. It can be said that it is a very careful restaurant. The ingredients are selected from the best ingredients, whether it is the most clicked sashimi or sea urchins, including drinks, snacks, and ice cream. The decoration of the restaurant also reveals Japanese elements, and the waiters are also very enthusiastic, almost on call.
It is said that this restaurant is one Michelin star restaurant in Washington, but it feels so-so after eating, not so good, the sashimi inside is not fresh enough, the taste of sushi is so-so, and the environment is not bad.
Because I have been eating Japanese food for many years, I have eaten it in many different cities. My disappointment not to live in DC (not that I want to move) is largely due to not being able to eat sushi taro every week at least. (If I live there, take advantage of their happiness, their omikase counter, and their kaiseki cuisine. Please visit their website for a complete description of these products. My name is "Bara Chirashi". This is because of me Knowing that it will taste wonderfully fragrant rice on the bed of fish and vegetables. The dish itself is not too deep, which means there is enough rice instead of the usual pile of rice I am used to posters in other restaurants. The "set" It’s the element of surprise in a bowl of chawan mushi; it’s a delicious custard with plenty of lobster (and possibly shrimp) at the bottom; i-seriously-could eat this huge service. Everything else in our party is a wonderful soup, Sushi, sashimi, everything. Also, please note that this restaurant is on the first floor and on the second floor, accessible by stairs outside. The prices are quite reasonable.
My husband and I went to dinner and decided on the taste of kaiseiki TDO - I'm glad we chose this tasting menu at the sushi tasting with sashimi sushi as well as traditional Japanese cuisine. The food was exquisite, well prepared and delicious. There are things I've never had before and I'm really impressed with the craft and method of making even if I don't like it. It's the freshest sashimi and sushi so far and you'll be in DC and delicious. If you are in DC or staying there, I highly recommend visiting this restaurant.
Very traditional sushi...very delicious! Our four groups enjoyed tasting menu with wine paired. We also enjoyed the sake an extra large bottle ( don't remember which one, but it was dry ( dassai?)) and our waiter told us that it had a high alcohol content and giggled. We were already quite happy with the crowds, but she had a great time. Comprehensive, professional service, high quality sushi, pleasant atmosphere.
