Sushiko Space For Lease in Glover Park

2309 Wisconsin Ave, NW

Back in July we first learned that Sushiko had closed in Glover Park. At the time there was still hope they could possibly reopen. Sadly a reader updates:

“Walking by Sushiko in glover park on Sunday I noticed a very sad development. On the alley side is a very large Papadopoulos Properties For Lease sign – I guess that is the nail in the coffin and one of DC’s first and great sushi restaurants is done.”

I know it’s a long shot but I hope the eventual new tenants save the mural above.

  • I never noticed the mural but it’s great – I hope they save it too! As for Sushiko being “done”, don’t they have a location in Friendship Heights?

  • yes – there’s a location in Friendship Heights. I just noticed the ‘for lease’ sign this morning. :-(

  • I must be the only one who didn’t find this place totally amazing.

  • These landlords are a particularly greedy bunch – not surprised at all that they kicked out a proven business in distant hopes of bigger and better.

  • I propose the space be taken over by good guys and they knock the wall down to make one super strip club.

  • I believe it was DC’s FIRST sushi restaurant. I had some great meals here over the years, and I’m truly sad it’s gone.

    • There was also the Mikado farther up on Wisconsin Ave (across the street from where the Yosaku is). Not sure which opened first, but the Mikado was definitely around in the late 1970s and was a wonderful place. Sadly, it closed about 15 years ago. I’ll miss Sushi Ko as well.
