Tono Sushi

June 2005

The best time to eat bargain sushi at this very good Woodley Park sushi bar is at happy hour from 5 to 7 pm, when sushi is $1 apiece. But even during regular hours, a sushi meal won't break the bank. Individual pieces of sushi are priced from $1.50 for the sweet omelet or tofu to $2.95 for uni, or sea-urchin roe. Rolls–the specials vary daily–are $2.50 to $10.50. A sushi dinner–six pieces and a roll or just eight pieces–is a bargain at $14.95; the Jo-Sushi dinner, ten pieces and a roll, is $18.95. Both come with a bowl of miso soup.

There's lots more than sushi to choose from. The pan-Asian part of the menu, mostly Chinese and Thai dishes, is not very appealing. Stick to the Japanese dishes–tempura, teriyaki, or beef negimaki–beef wrapped around scallions with teriyaki sauce.
