Alexandria, VA

Sushi restaurant The Handover, which is replacing Eamonn’s Dublin Chipper at 728 King Street, is planning opening tomorrow, according to staff at the restaurant.

A sign in the window says the restaurant is focused on hand rolls called temaki.

“The most important thing to know about hand rolls is that they are best enjoyed the moment they are made [when] the nori is at its most crisp, the ingredients are at their freshest, and the rice is still fluffy,” the sign in the window to the restaurant said. “This is why The Handover is designed as it is. No matter how many rolls you order, each one is delivered to you immediately by the hand that made it.”

The interior of the restaurant is set up along a long counter, where customers can watch the rolls being prepared.

Staff said the second floor, sit-down restaurant King’s Ransom is also set to open tomorrow, though in keeping with the vague tradition of the location as a speakeasy, the menu and decor of that restaurant are still not being revealed.
