You Have to Try This: Salmon Tataki at Perrys

By Julia Beizer

The fish is good, but the pearls of roe make this dish fun. (Julia Beizer - The Washington Post)

The second the mercury rises above 70 in this town, we all begin taking happy hour outside. Adams Morgan's Perrys remains one of the best spots to do so. Sushi dishes seem to pair best with the vibe on the breezy white roof deck, and while I'll always order the sashimi assortment off the happy hour menu, I recently found a new dish to tickle my fancy. The salmon tataki is made up of seared strips of fish resting in a pool of jalapeño cream sauce. Beads of roe rest atop the dish and burst like Gushers (remember those?) when you pop them into your mouth. The dish is $5 from 5:30 until 7:30 every night -- just like the dozen other selections on the happy hour menu, which includes both offerings from the sushi bar and some Spanish-style tapas from new chef Jose Picazo, who studied under Jose Andres at Jaleo. A selection of cocktails, wines and beers go for $4.

This new occasional feature shines a spotlight on some of our favorite dishes and drinks across town. You know, the ones that are just so good you want to give your friends a taste. Got a tip for us? E-mail us at goingoutgurus [at]
