THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sushi-Ko Restaurant Review

: Sushi-Ko --- the first restaurant to enlighten Washingtonians as to the gourmet delights of sushi --- has continued to evolve and improve since its first days in town many years ago. Part of its appeal, of course, is the sushi bar downstairs, where a crew of Japanese chefs works diligently over such creations as tuna with jalapeño chiles or honey-roasted duck breast with mustard miso. But even more of a draw is the unique and unconventional items that put a spin on traditional Japanese dishes: seared white tuna tataki or a ceviche trio of salmon, yellowtail and tuna. Enhancing the allure is the unusual collections of fine French wines (yes, French Burgundies do go with sushi) and obscure Japanese sakés. It's no wonder, then, that Sushi-Ko, under the ownership of Daisuke Utagawa and the cooking skills of Koji Terano, has become a mecca for a very in crowd, a veritable who's who of DC's powerbrokers and other local celebs.
