Fodor's Expert Review Daikaya

$$ U Street Corridor Japanese

This quirky, gorgeously decorated split-level party for gourmands is "Lost in Translation" in restaurant form, a sexy-quirky tour of modern Japanese flavors that serves fresh ramen on the ground floor and small plates one flight above that would be right at home in New York City's world-famous Momofuku. Smoked Gouda cheese adds heft and bite to broccoli rabe, while pork-and-Brussels-sprout skewers run the texture and taste gamut thanks to crunchy bonito flakes and lush, creamy sauce. Bet you can't eat just one—or resist coming back to try both floors' menus, not to mention the marvelous, affordable brunch and lunch options.
