Ikina is a sushi spot in the thick of the Capitol Hill nightlife insanity - but it’s pretty relaxing inside. Sit at the counter in a room full of Japanese room dividers and tie-dyed tapestries. The sushi chefs will likely strike up a conversation with you, and the presentation will make you feel like you’re treating yourself.
