Enter the Chipotle of Sushi: Kaz Okochi’s Oh Fish! Is Now Open

Restaurateur Kaz Okochi's fast casual-style sushi joint Oh Fish! opened on Wednesday at 1103 19th St. NW.

Its gimmick: Diners can build their own maki rolls the same way they would customize their burrito bowls at Chipotle.

Washingtonian previously had the scoop on the place. On Thursday, WaPo's Justin Rude takes us down the ordering line:

Grab a checklist-style menu and choose fillings for your custom maki roll. Protein choices include favorites like spicy tuna, as well as salmon and a vegetarian option. Follow that up with a few veggie fillings, a sauce and optional dry topping. Hand your sheet to a cashier, who will helpfully suggest sides and a drink (including fruit-infused iced green tea), and then wait for the small team of maki-rollers (with the help of an automatic rice-and-seaweed-binder and a roll-slicer) to complete your order.
