Welcome to the photo series Eater Scenes, in which Eater photographers visit some of the country's great restaurants to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. Here now, Daniel Krieger at Toki Underground in Washington, DC.
Chef Erik Bruner-Yang opened Toki Underground in Washington, DC in 2011 and the restaurant has been buzzing since, with lines on Friday and Saturday nights just as long as ever. Inspired by Taiwan and Japan, Toki Underground serves ramen and dumplings in a small space decorated with knick-knacks in every corner. Below, a look at the scene at 6:30 p.m. on a Friday.
