Always-Packed Himitsu Gives Reservations a Go for Its Rotating Supper Club

The critically acclaimed Petworth restaurant will offer two seatings a night for a weekly tasting menu

First came an exploratory brunch service. Now, renowned Petworth restaurant Himitsu is relaxing its long-standing no-reservations policy to allow customers a shot at partaking in a new weekly supper club.

Washington City Paper reports that starting Monday, July 16, customers will be able to make reservations for twice nightly seatings of a rotating tasting menu choreographed by chef Kevin Tien and beverage director Carlie Steiner. The crazy talented co-founders plan to roll out the new service on Monday, August 6. The inaugural multi-course meal is projected to focus on dim sum — including an eggplant and shrimp pairing that Tien is excited to unveil.

According to the City Paper, each featured menu ($80-$100 per person, before drink pairings) will likely stick around for about two months; Tien will then switch things up with something new. The pioneering restaurant is known for its spicy Korean-style fried chicken, raw seafood dishes, masterful duck and pork belly creations, and whimsical cocktails.
