Sushi Grade Salmon and Tuna in DC?

Terptime | Jun 2, 2008 08:08 AM

Anyone aware of any locations in DC that carry high quality Sushi-Grade Salmon and Tuna in NW? I seem to remember a market on Wisconsin Ave?

I called Blacksalt this weekend and they informed me they had Salmon that they felt comfortable selling for Sushi?

Both Durama Japanese Market and Hinata Japanese Market in Bethesda I have been told carry sushi grade salmon and tuna but at $30/lb? Plus, would prefer not to drive to Bethesda.

Any thoughts on the SW Waterfront Market or other locations? Anyone have an experience ordering tuna and salmon for sushi online?

Also, what is the storage and lifespan of sushi purchased? Do I need to freeze?
