Blake King

RESTAURANT

HOMETOWN

Washington, DC

Chef Blake King worked in some of DC and Chicago's top kitchens [Central, Le Diplomate, Palena] [Momotaro, BOKA] before turning his talents to yakitori—and then trained for years under masters in Japan [Yakitori Imai], learning the art (and language) surrounding charcoal-grilled chicken skewers. Eventually, he dreams of opening a neighborhood izakaya focused on grilled skewers and small plates; in the meantime you’ll find his grills firing at pop-ups around town—Instagram is a good way to track—and succulent skewers in yakitori bentos at Hana Market on U Street.
