About KAZ Sushi Bistro - Washington
In 1999, Chef Kaz (Kazuhiro) Okochi opened KAZ Sushi Bistro in downtown Washington D.C. Located near the White House, The World Bank and George Washington University, the 74 seat sushi haven has immediately become one of Washington D.C.’s most sought after Japanese dining destinations. Over the past 25 years, Chef Kaz established his fame by reimagining authentic Japanese dishes with a delightful twist, which he has called the “Freestyle Japanese Cuisine”. By infusing Western and other international flavors, techniques, and presentations, Chef Kaz’s dishes reflects the culturally diverse environment of Washington D.C. while remaining faithful to the roots of Japanese tradition. In recent years, Chef Kaz broadened the concept of Japanese cuisine by introducing Japanese comfort foods, including his childhood favorites from the Nagoya region. KAZ Sushi Bistro offers a variety of dining options from quick lunches and casual dinners to the extravagant Omakase (Chef’s choice) experience to guests from all over the world, including political VIPs and Hollywood celebrities.
KAZ Sushi Bistro has won numerous awards include 2000 RAMMY New Restaurant of the Year Finalist, 2006 & 2012 RAMMY Chef of the Year Finalist, 2006 RAMMY Informal Dining Restaurant of the Year, Washingtonian Magazine Best 100.
