Is Washoku Cafe Open?

Eater has gotten word from a tipster that Washoku Cafe has opened, but nobody is answering the phone and the place seemed deserted.  This is the new Japanese bento place on 37th btw. Mad+5th that for a time was selling bentos out of plastic tub on 50th btw. 6+7th (before one of their people may or may not have been arrested.)  Anybody have any more intel?


  • It is officially open and they have a great deal on a hearty Miso Soup for $2.25.

  • just ate there this afternoon!

    for now it’s only sushi, cold bento boxes, rice balls, soup, tea, coffee and cold drinks. i had a large miso, it was fantastic with root veggies, carrots, and onions, bursting with flavor. also had a salmon rice ball, standard but good. spoke briefly with the owners who mentioned that by new year’s they’ll have hot food set up, and there’s plenty of seating if u decide to eat in.
