Elephant Sushi has super-fresh fish and very good sushi and small plates, all in a sleek space. The restaurant is small, but service is quick and tables turn over quickly. We tend to eat a lot of sashimi here, but the White Out roll - with yellowtail, avocado, seared butterfish, and garlic ponzu - is pretty solid too.
