Overview

Capitalize on quality Japanese fare in Capitol Hill at Momiji. Served in a persimmon-hued dining room, the menu includes kaiseki courses, along with Kyoto-style dishes. Their signature specialty rolls, like the Moonraker filled with spicy yellowtail, cucumber, cilantro, spicy snow crab and a dab of truffle oil, have built a following. Happy hour happens twice: after work and after 10pm when an abbreviated late night bar menu is available.
