In spite of its questionable name, Tom Sietsema visits Logan Circle's new Japanese restaurant, Tsunami, for a First Bite column. The restaurant was named before the earthquake hit Japan, but the owner (who also owns Thaitanic) tells Sietsema that he wants "a name that people will remember." As for the food, the critic writes: "Of the cooked dishes, the best I came across is Bang Bang Shrimp. Dredged in paprika and tempura flour then fried to a gentle crisp, the seafood is presented in a reduction of Thai green curry, sake and brown sugar: Bang, bang, I'm fed!" [WaPo]
