Last week, I had the pleasure of being a guest at Kushi Izakaya and Sushi’s fall catering menu presentation. Kushi, which was opened by husband and wife team Darren Lee Norris and Ari Kushimoto Norris this spring, has become well known in the DC area for serving fresh and innovative sushi and sashimi as well as delicious small plates. Located in the CityVista building (along with Busboys & Poets and Taylor Gourmet), the restaurant has drawn rave reviews from patrons who admire the authentic Eastern fare, as well as the sprawling and social dining room.

Chef Darren Norris talks about his very specific summer BBQ personal favorites.
Favorite burger on the grill: “A mix of 75 percent beef and 25 percent pork on Martin’s potato rolls with Stubb’s barbecue sauce: “Pork makes the burgers juicy.” Best burger beer: “Sapporo out of a huge can.” How I like my corn: Cuban style—rolled in chili mayo (mayonnaise with chopped chipotles and lime juice) and then rolled in queso fresco. Weird things I’ve grilled: “I wrap prosciutto, garlic, tomato, and mozzarella with outer romaine leaves. It’s my version of a grilled summer salad.” Favorite summer wines: St. Supéry’s Pinot Grigio for guests (“I don’t really drink much white wine”)—and Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Best way to eat summer fruit: Strawberries on grilled pound cake with basil simple syrup.
“Two examples are the Shochu Breeze, made with shochu, muddled cucumber and Calpico, a Japanese soft drink, and the Yuzu Martini, made with shochu and yuzu liqueur, each priced at $10 at Kushi Izakaya & Sushi, a three-month-old izakaya in Washington, D.C.”—From Nation’s Restaurant News by James Scarpa, June 17, 2010 Read more: "US diners discover Japanese shochu"
