Nooshi

Nooshi is located above Tash on Barracks Row.  The menu features a wide selection of regional Asian dishes as well as mouthwatering sushi.  Dishes are inventively light, low in fat, visually arresting and vividly flavored. Each dish is expertly prepared by the talented, skillful and innovative chefs using the freshest and top quality ingredients.  Closest Metro is Eastern Market.


The space is beautiful, with large paintings of cherry blossoms. The upper level also offers a small bar and roof deck that is sure to be a popular spot this summer, once they straighten out the permits situation.  Our server was very friendly and to start off, I ordered a Peach Pagne cocktail that was made with peach puree and champagne.  It was fruity and refreshing.  To share, we ate the Vietnamese Spring Rolls that had great flavor from the crab meat and minced pork filling mixture.  It also came with a vinegary sauce that was delightful and bright.  We didn't want any other of the "oodles or noodles" offered, instead focused in on the sushi.  A combination platter caught my eye that was perfect to share - the Sushi Grand.  It was a large tray with pieces of tuna, salmon, white fish, shrimp, BBQ eel, surf clam, yellowtail, mackeral, and California roll.  Just in case that wasn't enough, we also ordered two pieces each of yellowtail and tuna toro - Keith's favorite.

The sushi was fresh and warm, similar to our experience in Japan, and very satisfying.  My favorites were the tuna toro, salmon, and the California roll.  The ambience was modern and welcoming - providing a great place for large groups. I plan to return to check out the roof bar area next.  Nooshi is another great addition to Barracks Row and cannot be missed with a large beautiful mural on the side of the building painted by street artist, Gaia.
