This hip and funky sushi joint serves up sushi burritos, a very on-trend meal lately. The menu organizes burritos by taste, ranging from the yellowfin tuna-stuffed Beatrix, to the savory McGraw, which showcases beef short rib and wasabi tarragon. Our favorite? The tangy Sofie burrito features crunchy shrimp tempura, sriracha mayo, avocado, and toasted sesame seeds. 825 14th St. NW, 202-289-0033
Unless you completely hate raw fish, you know about one of the newest trends to hit our area, poke bowls. Poke, which is seasoned raw fish, has been popular in Hawaii for hundreds of years, has made its way across the ocean. Honeyfish lets you customize your poke by choosing a base (rice, kale or mixed greens) a protein (tuna, salmon, octopus), and toppings such as edamame, crunchy carrots, and a spicy mayo. 1401 K St. NW, 202-792-5539

Avocado toast is here to stay, and we are not upset about it.
