Sushi in Georgetown is as scarce as water in the desert. The closing of Benihana last year only exasperated the shortage. During my first week at work my I was greeted with the pleasant news that there was a long-standing sushi restaurant less than a block away from my job.
Sushi To Go is located in a niche spot right along the canal between Thomas Jefferson and 31st St.. Owned by a Korean couple that have been serving the residents of Georgetown for several years.
Since I am a sushi fanatic I decided to give this place a try. I have had several experiences with sushi and tried almost every restaurant in the DC area that serves it. I have also ventured to other cities such as Chicago, Miami, and Los Angeles to try this japanese delicacy. I even make my own from time to time.
I walked in and was immediately greeted by the owners. I decided to try the Caterpillar and Alaskan rolls both of which are specialty rolls and an order of squid (Ika). The sushi and one can of coke cost me $18 which expensive in my opinion for take out sushi.
Sadly the sushi did not live up to my standards and the price tag associated with it exasperated the disappointment I felt. The ingredients were not as fresh and they should have been which rendered a poor meal. While the service was fantastic the food failed to impress me.
I would not recommend going here unless you want a quick and simple California roll or some miso soup. Sadly this means that there is only one good sushi restaurant in all of Georgetown.
