The Dish: Chef Peter Dreams of Sushi

by Catherine Trifiletti

Yume means “dream” in Japanese and at the year-old Yume Sushi in Arlington,Va.

, it translates into a dynamic seven-course omakase experience navigated by Kannasute. Born in Thailand, Kannasute opened the 70-seat dining room and sake lounge in 2018 to realize his vision of a customer-first restaurant that showcases his passion for Japanese food and culture. The menu has a standard rundown of sushi staples, but it’s the dealer’s choice that allows the chef to shine brightest.

In Kannasute’s more than capable hands, diners are led on a taste journey that varies daily based on which fish were flown in fresh that morning. On one visit there were melt-in-your-mouth scallops from Maine, creamy uni from Hokkaido and umami-packed fatty bluefin tuna from Spain. Guests are invited to sit at the sushi counter where comfortable bar stools serve as passenger seats for the adventure.

From this close vantage point, it is easy to be captivated by the chef ’s careful preparation and assembly of each dish. Bites of fish are accented with dollops of French caviar, truffle oil-spiked wasabi and delicate squares of rich foie gras.

With each presentation, Kannasute offers a short speech on how to get the best bang out of the bite. As he reaches for a delicate wood box holding strips of A5 Waygu (the certificate to carry the special steak is possessed by only a few District chefs), he says, “close your eyes and let the flavors and textures play in your mouth like a song.

As the seven course symphony concludes, chef ’s passionate metaphor rings true – Yume’s fresh chorus of flavors can make any palate sing.

Say Yes to Sake!

Several cocktails are anchored by house-made sake infusions including blueberry and lychee. Start with a Lycheetini filled with crushed yuzu-spiked ice. Be sure to ask for guidance when approaching the extensive and impressive sake list.
