Explore our guide to Washington’s best sushi, sake, ramen, and more.
Isakaya Seki—a snug, family-run Japanese restaurant off DC's U Street—is one of the year's most exciting debuts.
Japanese knives are some of the most prized—and expensive. Local chefs reveal their favorites.
The founder of Sushiko has exciting plans—keep an eye out for Daikaya, a soon-to-open izakaya, and Kiji Club, a Japanese-style cocktail bar.
The Toki Hakata Classic ramen at Toki Underground is one of our favorite bowls in the area. Chef/owner Erik Bruner-Yang explains what goes into an order.
There are more places than ever to warm up over big bowls of the Japanese noodle soup. We slurped our way through them—and found some excellent pork-belly buns and mango shaved ice along the way.
From Happy Spoons to roiling ramen: You really have to try them all.
