Did Kushi in Mt. Vernon Open This Week?

Kushi is set to open at 465 K Street, NW near the giant yellow sculpture we looked at earlier in the week. When I took this photo there were a number of folks walking around inside and the place looked on the cusp of opening. If you live in the City Vista or nearby – what’s the good word?

    Nope, it hasn’t opened yet.
    The official opening is set for March 8, and there will be some soft opening dinners next week, according to the owner who I spoke with yesterday when I was walking home…she said the people inside were owners and investors, and their friends, who were tasting a sampling of the food (so this would be the ultra-soft opening?).

    Too funny! Great idea in 3 – 2 – 1…take a year to open, hire a publicist, have them get you 20 interviews around town, broadcast how great your nonexistent restaurant is, tell everyone your open date, then not open! Smart…

    Additionally the post stamp sized flag they are using as a sign couldn’t even alert an ant that there is a restaurant within a in a snow balls throw of this establishment

    Good luck to them but it seems like Amateur Hour at the Apollo

      To be fair it looks like the signage is really supposed to reflect an actual Japanese izakaya; small flags with various symbols represent different types of eating establishments. I really REALLY hope they are going for authentic here and not just another sushi bar. If this is a real deal it will be popular if only because we don’t have one in DC yet. Bar food in Japan is simply awesome.
