Himitsu introduces new supper club
Your prayers have been answered: D.C.’s most coveted restaurant is now offering reservations. The catch? It’s Monday nights only and it’s a set, multi-course menu. That being said, if you can’t handle Himistu’s no reservation policy, this is probably your best option. The meal is $90 a person, a wine pairing is optional. The food is guaranteed to be phenomenal. BYT will be doing a full review; check back in a few weeks to get all the details about this new dining adventure.
