Last night, the DC socialite and nightlife crowd celebrated the opening of Fujimar Restaurant and Lounge with their exclusive VIP opening night party. Located above Club Lima, Fujimar will serve a creative dinner menu featuring sushi and Asian fusion dishes, and function as a late-night lounge. It looks to offer a relaxed nightlife alternative to the existing DC club scene.

Showcasing a bevy of tasty cocktails, last night emphasized the brilliant work of in-house mixologist, Ari Wilder. His Asian-influenced drinks wowed guests, and were matched beautifully with Chef Raynold Mendizenbal fusion dishes and artfully plated sushi.

DJ Natty Rico kept the party lively, simultaneously DJing and wailing on the saxophone.

The team behind Fujimar believes they have found a recipe for success in this laid-back, late-night lounge and sushi bar. Considering how wild Lima can get, DC could use a spot like this to take a quick breather.
