Chef Darren is a James Beard Award Winner of "Top 25 Best New Restaurant in America” and winner of Restaurateur of the Year 2011 of Washington DC.
Chef Darren offers you skewers of tasty bites grilled over binchotan charcoal, accompanied with bowls of fresh soba and udon noodles and flavorful broths to nourish the soul.
