How Trump Hate Can Result in Your Getting a Great Table at One of the Best Sushi Restaurants in America

Tyler Cowen discusses the Sushi Nakazawa restaurant inside the Trump International Hotel  :

I offer a mostly sociological review in my latest Bloomberg column.  When I went the restaurant was completely empty the entire time.  D.C. really doesn’t like Trump, or being affiliated with him.  But here is my assessment of the food and restaurant:
And what about the food? It may be the best restaurant in Washington right now — and it was the second-best sushi meal I’ve had in America, behind only Masa, the Michelin three-star temple in Manhattan. Sushi Nakazawa flies in lots of sushi from Hokkaido, a premier source of supply, and the presentation is impeccable.
If I have a complaint, it is about the d├ęcor and atmosphere: the tacky carpet, highly visible fire alarm and annoying muzak were all magnified by the absence of human beings in the main dining room. The room is ugly without being informal or relaxing or culturally interesting.
 Be there, or be square!
