"OTANI" means "Great Falls" in Japanese and it has been the inspiration behind the second high-energy restaurant since 1996. From 2006 the owner, John Yamasa, Japanese Korean, an energetic man who has been operating several bar, restaurant and so on, has been changing plenty of things in OTANI. The friendly staff greets customers by name, usually by the second visit.


OTANI THE FRONT GATE is created for good luck to everyone and will give you the double that you've been wishing. All around the wall interior features organic sienna and deep warming walls with your honesty. The high rised bar and sushi bar in the front.


Described as “unique Japanese-American Steak with soul” cuisine, Owner-proprietor John and Manager-proprietor previous executive Chef J.J. take advantage of the “astonishing array of fresh produce and fish available in D.C.” John brings inspiration from his former Japanese home which he describes as the “California of Asia” since it is also a peninsula rich in fish, seafood and fresh produce. This is reflected in the healthy, artistic sushi and Pan-Asian meat, seafood and vegetable dishes created by John with Manager J.J. , which feature Japanese ingredients in sushi and original dishes with Japanese, Korean, Italian and American touches.

Specialties of the Bar

The bar menu includes sake, the affordable, smooth but a strong Japanese drink known as an Asian wine (approximately 12% alcohol) and a variety of Japanese beer as well, a full array of western wine and American beers.
