MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Advance planning is a must for this sushi speakeasy, which admits just 24 guests per night (in three seatings of eight). Tucked behind sister tavern, Woodley Proper, the hidden dining room feels like a portal to the past, with a candlelit wooden bar and nostalgic Japanese jazz on the stereo. Just two itamae and a bartender run the show, serving you and a few neighbors. Though its vibe is old-school, the nigiri is anything but, featuring such creative ingredients as bone marrow, pineapple, sturgeon caviar and quinoa. Inspiration comes from everywhere, as in scallops bathed in a spicy and complex Peruvian leche de tigre, while LA-Japanese mashup charcoal mochi may cap the meal. Order up a couple of the top-notch cocktails to truly savor the ride.
