Although Van Ness residents could alway revel in a “Taste of Pleasure” for their sushi, there was considerable excitement when Sushi Para entered the market. The Chicago sushi chain announced its entrance into the DC market right in the middle of Van Ness and nearly across the street from its biggest neighborhood competitor.
Sushi Para has been open for two months and has received, at best, mixed reviews. Some buzz surrounding the restaurant includes excitement for its $22 all you can eat sushi special (you need to ask for it). Other buzz has centered on hit-or-miss food quality and service. We have heard more than a few negative comparisons to Spices in Cleveland Park, which is admittedly a tough act to follow for a new restaurant.
What have you heard about Sushi Para? Have you had a good experience there?
