Zentan Restaurant Review

: Although this extremely elegant, upscale pan-Asian eatery (think dynamite sushi and cross-cultural entrées that snag flavors from Cantonese and Singaporean kitchens and elsewhere) has opened with little fanfare, it may become one of DC’s hottest nightspots. Located in Donovan House at the edge of Thompson Circle and open only for dinner, it has captured the after-work and late-night partiers who relish the luscious sushi bar for eats and drinks. The menu goes beyond sushi and also features a delicate Singapore slaw, a pulled-duck roll sparked with nuts and goat cheese, Mongolian rack of lamb, and caramelized black cod, among so many other dishes that it would take a stalwart gastronome to eat his way through it in its entirety. It’s a bit pricey, but the indulgences of fine Asian fare coupled with unusual cocktails and high-class sakés make this a memorable, if celebratory, experience. Note that hotel guests may enjoy select menu items poolside on the roof.
