The name Hachi derives from the number 8 in Japanese. Located on 8th Street, it also conveniently doubles as a hint to the neighborhood we are located in. The number 8 is also considered a lucky number in Japan, as well as a number that symbolizes happiness. Sushi Hachi brings the highest degree of loyalty and respect to it's guests and food, and hopes to bring everlasting luck and joy to them as well.
Located in the historic and quaint Eastern Market neighborhood, Sushi Hachi brings DC the promise of food the way it is supposed to be – Simple, true to its origins, and affordable. When owner, chef, and restaurateur Steve Yoon took over Sushi Rock in Arlington, VA, he had a vision in mind: to bring together the high quality of fish he experienced in Asia with the modernity of the DC-Maryland-Virginia area. Seven years later, he brought his vision to fruition with Sushi Hachi. Steve Yoon and his team combines more than 17 years of experience in the art of sushi. Steve's handpicked team of chefs include those who have earned their keep in the motherland of sushi - Japan. With their extensive knowledge and experience, the team at Sushi Hachi takes on the art of traditional sushi with an innovative drive.
An amalgamation of traditional Japanese nigiri and simple, yet modern temaki (hand rolls), Sushi Hachi uses the freshest ingredients to create sushi as it was meant to be. It has been too long since the D.M.V. area has seen the beauty of simple, yet fresh and appetizing sushi menu that we pledge to bring our guests.
