Fodor's Expert Review Sushi Land East

$$ The Plaza Japanese

Walk into this tiny chef-owned restaurant, and you'll be leaving the Southwest far behind you. A former chef from Shohko prepares masterful, reasonably priced sushi with an emphasis on unusual combinations. Try the softshell crab tempura roll, or the superb toro nigiri (fatty tuna). A real standout is the tantalizing Aloha roll, with fresh ahi poke, pineapple, avocado, and papaya salsa. There's a very good sake selection, with a more limited selection of beer. Sushi Land is a noodle shop too, but sushi is the raison d'être here. The atmosphere is casual, with dark-wood tables, orange walls, and Japanese prints.
