WasabiSito Opens In Arlington

WasabiSito, the first of many planned offshoots of downtown's Wasabi, opened today at 3129 Lee Hwy.

The new sushi spot is primarily a takeout restaurant but also offers limited seating. On the modern Japanese menu: a variety of sushi rolls, salad boxes, hot dishes like chicken teriyaki and a few fusion items that reflect executive chef Miguel Choy's Asian/Latin American background, such as salmon anticucho. A kids menu includes vegetarian sushi and fish nuggets.

And we can expect to see more Wasabi offspring popping up. The Washington Business Journal's Erin Killian reported back in January that Wasabi CEO Bo Davis was planning four more establishments in the D.C. area, including Arlington's new outpost, Adams Morgan and possibly F Street Northwest. Davis plans to take the contemporary sushi concept national, according to the story.

Look for WasabiSito's delivery to start in mid-May. To read more about Wasabi, which opened in July 2006, click here.
