Sushi Taro doles out authentic Japanese and seafood, and during their happy hour, you can get half-price regular sushi and alcohol!
In an unassuming location above a CVS in Dupont Circle, Sushi Taro offers some of the best sushi in the city. The restaurant provides a kaiseki experience where you’ll experience top-notch Japanese fine dining through eight courses, as well as a lauded omakase experience you won’t soon forget. That option will run you a cool $250 per person with several courses that change by the day so no two visits are the same and range in decadent delight from A5 Wagyu beef to lobster and fatty tuna. Beyond expert-crafted sushi, you’ll also get a front-row seat to the expertise of chef Nobu Yamazaki’s technical skills—watching as he prepares dishes like grilled marinated tuna cheek followed by stacks of boxes containing generous cuts of fish, which creates different textures and temperatures for the palate.
Heralded by many as the best sushi joint in town, this upscale Japanese spot is sure to impress. Sushi Taro takes the guesswork out of the ordering process—a sure relief for those who aren’t well-versed in the language of nigiri and sashimi. Sit down for a chef’s choice dinner at the omakase counter and let the chefs work their magic, serving dishes like grilled marinated tuna cheek followed by stacks of boxes containing generous cuts of fish.
