Kaz Sushi Bistro Restaurant Review

: Kazuhiro (Kaz) Okochi defined the art of sushi in DC when he was at Sushi-Ko, and it’s easy to see why: His knife cuts are clean and his fish pieces look like sculptures. Now that Kaz has set up his own sushi bar, patrons can dig into a variety of classics, offbeat rolls and assorted sushi bar and kitchen specialties. Check the daily list for whimsical creations such as the shrimp with salsa. If Kaz himself is working the sushi bar, the omakase menu is a must. Come here to sample Kaz's signature creations like the napoleon composed of sea trout and wonton skins, chile powder accents and beet juice mysteriously flavors. If you are full of adventure, have the kitchen cook for you (the eight course "sushi parade" tallies $75). If you sit at the sushi bar, you can chat with Kaz; otherwise, the bamboo-toned dining room offers a tranquil Asian setting.
