Hip hang for Japanese-style dishes
Japanese · Petworth · $$
Since its name means 'secret' in Japanese, it’s fitting that this Petworth hangout offers off-the-menu drinks and bites along with sushi, sashimi, inventive Asian-meets-Southern dishes like buttermilk-fried chicken with Korean gochujang sauce and artful cocktails by Carlie Steiner (ex Barmini). The cool white, gray and blue space has an intimate, boutique-y feel, accented with upholstered bench cushions and macramé above the bar.

Incredible spot. Loved the previous restaurant (Turtle and Crane) in this gorgeous, intimate yet lively space but this is an excellent successor. The food presented familiar dishes in creative ways and delivered a range of excellent tastes. Service was great, with attentive servers that fully described each dish as it arrived.

Such an unassuming building with a great treasure inside. Teeny tiny, but worth the wait. The rose mule was so different and yummy. The chicken pate was wonderful, but the beef was not very good.

Special place. They handcraft goodness of the Japanese variety. Don't expect sushi. Go with the recommendations and you will not go wrong. The only ding in this place is the price for beer/wine. They definitely overcharge for the basics - i.e. a can of beer will make you say: dilly-don't.
