Delectable Japanese Cuisine - Zentan - Washington, DC, 20005
  • Tako Yaki, Grilled Octopus

Contemporary Japanese Cuisine

Chef Yo Matsuzaki’s menu is about building harmony between old and new styles. Chef Yo’s dishes are designed to tell a story, whether they allude to a favorite childhood memory or bring out new flavors in a beverage pairing. For starters, try the tako yaki with chrysanthemum pesto or Chef’s favorite house-made dumplings. We also recommend a sampling of kushi from the custom built robata grill followed by sushi sourced from premiere Japanese markets.

Whether you’re in the mood for sake flights, Japanese whiskys, regional beers or hand-crafted cocktails, our bartenders have what you need for the perfect sip.
