Testimonial

Articles

"That invisible touch is just a droplet in a sea of detail that makes Midtown Center's modern Japanese izakaya unlink anything D.C. has seen before."
"Bluefin fatty tuna flavored with a yuzu-truffle dressing and dressed with domestic sturgeon caviar reinforced the fusion concept."
Shōtō is the kind of restaurant where even the door handle has a backstory... something distinct and intimate for DC."
