NoMa Restaurants

Happy hour rules at this triangular intersection of the bustling Capitol Hill, H Street Corridor and K Street districts.



Have a quiet sushi lunch in the modern dining room or jam to indie rock over sake in the evening.

Think you know what a Japanese restaurant is supposed to be like? Turn that idea on its head. You may be eating a negihama roll with freshly grated wasabi and smelling robata-grilled skewers, but you'll be listening to tunes by local blues, latin, jazz and reggae artists for Sunday brunch. Ask a knowledgeable server how to pair one of Kushi's 36 sakes with a dish you'll love for a crash course on the complex rice wine.


Try a Turkish coffee or one of 300 wine bottles, 48 of which are on tap.

Time for wine: Tel'Veh's got a 300-bottle wine list curated by a veteran sommelier who knows his stuff. There's even 48 wines on tap, a novelty available only in a few DC haunts. Hey, we think it's always 5 o'clock somewhere, but if you're in the mood for an alternative, the Turkish coffee is a delicious boost for the day (or night) ahead.
