If you wanted to have the best Sushi meal in your life near Washington or Baltimore, where would you go?
Meaning the most creative and the freshest and unusual. Is this possible?
Sushi Taro's omakase counter. Meets all 3 (provided creative to you doesn't mean weird rolls with too many ingredients).
Kaz Sushi Bistro's sushi is very good quality, but its real strength is its Asian small plates.
Here's a link to the menu page which lists the usual small plates:
There is always a daily special menu of sushi and small plates.
I particularly recommend the Asian short ribs and Nagoya chicken wings from the hot small plate menu. A big plus for the Hijiki and Jimica salad. We always order at least one sushi (or more typically sashimi) choice, but most of our meal consists of small plates.
