From a press release:
“WHAT: This year more than ever before, the DC restaurant community has mobilized to help neighbors and friends near and far. Earlier this year, Himitsu‘s Carlie Steiner and Kevin Tien supported Planned Parenthood ahead of January’s Women’s March. In the past week, Tropical Storm Harvey has flooded Houston and the surrounding areas, causing hundreds of thousands of people to evacuate their homes.
In response, Himitsu will be open on Sunday September 3rd and Monday September 4th for regular dinner service and a Chicken Sando lunch pop-up. 100% of profits will be donated to local Texas resources- one for immediate relief and one for long-term relief that will help build back homes and neighborhoods. They are The Greater Houston Community Foundation and The United Way.
Himitsu will also be donating 10% of their profits (and will accept open donations) all week leading up to Sunday and Monday to Feeding Texas, a nonprofit that works with state and federal relief efforts and steps in during major disasters to help coordinate food efforts.

The Chicken Sando is a family meal staple at Himitsu and includes the restaurant’s signature Karaage Fried Chicken. On 9/2 and 9/3, it will be available for lunch at the restaurant, and to-go during dinner service.
From the owners:
Our team at Himitsu has friends, family and community members that are in a time of need. We can’t sit up here and do nothing. We have the resources to help, so we will. We hope that Sunday and Monday, the DC community will come help us support Texas.
WHEN: Sunday September 3rd and Monday September 4th
Lunch: 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Dinner: 5:00 PM – 10:00 PM
828 Upshur Street NW”
