Picture the scene. It’s a warm summer evening, and one that calls for a happy hour followed by dinner. Where can you go that takes advantage of the beautiful night, has drink specials that won’t leave you penniless, and enough food options to please your whole crew. The answer is Sushi Rock.
Start at the bar for the 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. happy hour with $5 classic rolls and $6 bar bites, plus specially priced cocktails. This time of year, the outdoor patio is open for dinner, and the perfect place to lounge with friends or a date over nigiri, sashimi, and maki rolls, or hot dishes like udon noodle soup, spicy stir fry, or expertly grilled and seasoned teriyaki steak. If your evening got started a bit late, you have the option of heading back to the bar for round two of happy hour from 9 p.m. until close.
Find Sushi Rock between the Court House and Rosslyn neighborhoods on Clarendon Boulevard. Lunch service starts daily at 11:30 p.m.
