We came here for a friend's birthday. The bar area on the second floor isn't too big, but thankfully it wasn't super crowded while we were there. The music was pretty good and the clientele was diverse.

You never know what's lurking behind the doors in the stretch of Connecticut Avenue, and Current does its best to please with great food, a moody decor, and super service. Go for the sushi or sashimi samplers -- a lot of fish exquisitely cut and...More
