Hikari Sushi opened on H Street back in January 2013.

Zach reports:

“I *think* Hikari Sushi on H St NE is closed. Big “For Sale” sign in window and the lights appeared to be off around dinner time yesterday.”

We knew the end was nigh when the building was listed for sale in May of last year. It just sold. STAY TUNED to see what becomes of the space.


“Dear PoPville,

In case you hadn’t seen, The Pursuit Wine Bar and Kitchen closed last night after five years of service at 1421 H St NE. They plan to reopen in their new home at 1025 H St NE in September.” Read More
