The Sushi Ko food philosophy is Cuisine of Subtraction. According to Creative Director Daisuke Utagawa, subtraction allows chefs to reveal the essence of each ingredient in it's most honest yet refined state. By subtly combining other ingredients, a taste sensation is created that demonstrates the complexity and beauty of nature for the eye and the palate.

"Our dining partners don't do sushi/sashimi, so we had some fabulous cooked dishes: (1) the all-time best soft crab I've ever had, (2) burikama, the yellowtail collar roasted with sea salt, and (3) roasted bronzino with cherry tomatoes. All absolutely outstanding! We love this place."

"We had some fabulous sashimi, especially the smoked salmon & goat cheese tartare. It sounds like a weird combination, but it was sensational!"

"Stunning presentation, cuisine, and wine. Simply put, perfection. The foie gras and tuna tartare were the highlight of the evening. Visit MOMA, and then have lunch or dinner in the bar area, and you will have a sensational day."

Tyber Bierhaus, in the heart of Bethesda, will be a perfect gathering venue for groups, large and small, and for any type of event, when we open.

"Monday night is half-price half liters of beer and special deals on mussels. We had the mussels with beer/duck fat sauce, which were really great. Plus three great beers (Wittekerke, Paulaner Hefeweizen, and Pilsner Urquell) to wash them down with. Just across Old Georgetown Road from the Bethesda metro. A real winner!"

"We were four at dinner, and had quite a feast of sashimi, including Hamachi Crudo, which was outstanding. But the highlight was the soft crab kara-age. I could eat several of them, but then I wouldn't have room left for the sashimi!"

"Burikama -- roasted yellowtail collar! It's the seafood equivalent of ribs. Amazing stuff. We had 2 orders and wanted more, but we had to have sashimi. Tough choice!"

Grapeseed American Bistro is a casual bistro that matches great food and wine together. With anywhere from 80 to 100 wines by the glass and approximately 325 bottle listed, we cater to the novice wine lover and to the experienced. We start with a bottle of wine and pick out the characteristics and nuances of the wine and then award winning Chef Jeffrey Heineman creates a menu item to highlight the flavors of the wine. So come in and relax, have a taste or a glass of wine and try something on our ever-changing menu.
