Finding By Tae is kind of like finding the tiniest Russian doll inside of all the others. Once you get through the random doorway at Chophouse Row on Capitol Hill and into the lobby, you’ll find a little seven-seat counter. Behind it, there’s miso soup boiling on a hot plate and a man who tends to it. You’ll find only one thing on the menu, and it’s a handroll tasting that involves three handrolls for $25. You never know exactly what you’re going to get, but the fish is extremely fresh, and if you mention to the chef that you’re into seared salmon, he’ll probably whip up something special on the house.
