Sushi maestro Billy Ngo is slated to launch his latest dining venture, Fish Face, this spring. The grab-and-go eatery, which Ngo describes as “a poke bar with a little bit of sushi,” will serve a half-dozen varieties of poke (a salad of cubed and seasoned raw fish that is a staple of Hawaiian cuisine), from traditional tuna poke to a vegetarian version made with tofu and cucumber, accompanied by rice and salad or edamame. A small bar will serve sake and beer. 

Fish Face is part of a wave of highly anticipated restaurant and retail openings on R Street near 11th, where Warehouse Artist Lofts and other projects are transforming the former industrial corridor into a see-and-be-seen destination for the city’s creative class. Ngo says the menu’s carryout format is perfect for nearby office workers and residents looking for a quick bite.

“It’s a really cool spot right now, especially with the artist lofts right there,” says Ngo, who also operates Kru, the celebrated sushi restaurant on J Street. “Our friends are doing projects all around us there. It just felt right to be part of it.”
