OMOTENASHI: What sets Japanese hospitality apart

Omotenashi is the word that embodies Japanese hospitality, where every service is from the bottom of the heart – honest, no hiding, no pretending. O-Ku DC offers modern Japanese cuisine defined by the freshest ingredients from around the world and a reference for traditional technique. From sushi and sashimi specialties to contemporary robata-style dishes, we create a distinctive international experience in the Union Market neighborhood.

We look forward to welcoming you into O-Ku DC so you may experience Omotenashi firsthand.
