Christmas Eve sushi (or seafood) in NoVA? DC?
I tried to make an OpenTable reservation for Kushi, but nothing is available. Hank's doesn't take reservations. We don't want anything <i>too</i> fancy or fussy, but I definitely want to be able to make a reservation, so our strip-mall neighborhood places are out. Any thoughts? Am I trying too <i>early</i> for online reservations, or am I (as usual) already too late?
I'd say too early. Hank's will take a call 15 or 20 minutes ahead and put you on the list, but that's of no help to you. Taro?
I just took a look and there are some good options, in particular BlackSalt is open on Christmas Eve. I went a year ago with my parents and the food was outstanding!
Sei is also open. I really enjoy their sushi and the other small plates.
It's not too early for some of these places. There are a bunch of reservations on Opentable. I prefer both of the above recs to Kushi, which I really, really didn't enjoy.
