THE SCENE. The large dining room can feel almost dead at night, and the service can be chilly. The action is at the sushi bar, which curves along an entire wall and boasts a skillful crew of chefs. Their handiwork--the best in the Virginia suburbs--accounts for the loyal following of office workers and families.
