4822 MacArthur Blvd, NW via Facebook

Thanks to a commenter for sharing in our initial post about all the restaurants that have closed in 2018. Makoto’s Facebook says:

After almost 26 years, Sakedokoro Makoto will close on December 29th. Thank you for all the support and goodwill over the years. It has been an absolute honor serving our customers.”

Their website says:

“Sakedokoro means Place of Sake, and Makoto simply means Harmony.

Since opening in 1994, Sakedokoro Makoto has provided an exclusive dining experience to the DC metro area. Our concept is to offer a Tokyo styled Kappo dining experience in which the Chef modifies or changes the menu on a daily basis. Sakedokoro Makoto is not a Sushi bar but an establishment that explores modern Japanese cooking using locally sourced & imported ingredients.”
