Toki Underground in DC, Friday at 6:30 P.M.

Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

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.
