2319 K Street,

Skool on K now offers lunch, and considering its novel approach to seafood at night, I sought to check it out by day. Some of the new offerings include a mackerel banh mi sandwich and a curried tuna melt, but for some reason I settled on the more terrestrial Tsukune Turkey Burger ($11). A mild, not-too-sweet teriyaki sauce coats an ultra-tender turkey patty on a bed of earthy greens and a pickled red cabbage slaw, all between an airy bit of ciabatta. Pair it with a side of nori-dusted fries ($3) for that final “hey, it’s seafood enough” touch.
