For $32, we'd expect more than just an orange juice option of questionable strength, but it's what we get for venturing down to the Wharf.
For being one of DC's only Japanese restaurants with a brunch deal, the menu is disappointingly light on sushi options — just three (and really only two once you discount the veggie roll) — leaving you eating standard brunch fare with a few fun twists (matcha on the pancakes; yuzu bearnaise on the steak). The one exception is the dumpling offerings, but these were so drenched in lemon we couldn't even finish a single order. This is all another $49, so your whole experience runs you north of $100.
Our server ensured we never suffered from an empty glass, while also securing an exception to the menu's everyone-must-order-bottomless rule. And impressively for an all-you-can-eat (and order) situation, we didn't lose a single dish in the fracas.
It's the Wharf, so you've got the obligatory view of the water from a nice perch, although for all the visual razzle-dazzle they seem to have neglected some more fundamental items, like comfortable chairs. Plus, the sign in the lobby advising diners that "due to the time allotted to your reservation, we'd ask that you take your pictures and video at the end of your time with us" feels just a tad presumptuous.
Classic brunch items are on offer and quite generously portioned, but if you're into beach-adjacent animals, we'd endorse switching over to the main menu
The $96 caviar and lox platter takes the cake as the most expensive brunch entree we’ve seen by a solid sixty bucks or so, but the rest of the menu is reasonably priced in the high teens
We're like the postmen. We brunch in rain, sleet, or snow
