828 Upshur Street, NW
Word is finally out on who’s taking over the Cappy’s Crabs space on Upshur – City Paper reports:
“While Japan will be the leading culinary influence for both the food and drinks, the restaurant is very much wrapped up in the personalities and viewpoints of its young, first-time restaurateurs. [Carlie Steiner and Kevin Tien] That’s why they’re dubbing it “New Japanese” cuisine because Tien, the executive chef, will punch up traditional Japanese preparations with Latin, Southeast Asian, and Korean flavors.
Himitsu will start by serving dinner Tuesdays-Saturdays from 5 p.m. to close. They will not take reservations. Instead, seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Mid-October is the projected opening date.”
On Facebook they shared on Saturday:
“Gettin’ lit @himitsudc // see you in a few weeks!!”
Stay tuned for an exact opening date.
