Meet Friends for Happy Hour at Kizuna

Looking for a new spot near the office to hit for happy hour? If you're a fan of sushi and other authentic Japanese food, try Kizuna in Vienna. This popular local sushi spot holds happy hour Monday through Friday from 3:30 to 7 p.m. Swing by with friends during this window to share a spicy salmon or California roll, try the smothered pork belly tots or ginger-scallion wings, and throw back some hot sake or a Japanese beer.

After your snacks and a drink or two, you might be tempted to stick around for dinner. Give into the temptation and enjoy a full feast of sushi. Treat yourself to an over-the-top specialty roll like the Piggie In & Out. It's stuffed with shrimp tempura, asparagus, and bacon then crowned with grilled salmon, crumbled bacon, avocado, spicy mayo, and a barbecue-eel glaze. Kizuna also offers authentic ramen and other kitchen entrees, so feel free to try the toro chashu ramen instead. The base of noodles and chicken broth comes loaded with chashu pork belly.
