Sushi Rolls, Bento Boxes, Ramen, Sake Now on Fat Fish Menu
Fat Fish, which opened in March of 2022 serving up insanely fresh poke bowls, has hired noted executive chef Lucas Irwin to keep the menu fresh and exciting. He’s already making an impact with a new menu that expands the Fat Fish menu from poke bowls and a few hand rolls to ramen, bento boxes, signature sushi rolls, and sake.
Fat Fish, which is part of the family of restaurants that includes Toastique and Chopsmith, landed Chef Lucas following a stint at Naraya. A native of Hawaii, he has worked at high end restaurants in Palm Beach, Maui, Vail, and Nantucket. Chef Lucas says he has fallen in love with DC since moving here a few years ago, and has an especially deep affection for the Wharf neighborhood, which he also calls home.
