Concierge.com's insider take:
This tiny eight-table restaurant is a favorite among in-the-know locals for owner Yun Choo's imaginative rolls. One of the most popular is his namesake Choo Choo Roll: eel, crab, salmon, and avocado topped with sliced strawberries. It's across the street from the legendary rock club Exit/In, making it a favorite pre-concert nosh for the cool kids. Other regulars include the occasional celebrity looking to get their nigiri fix (Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman are fans). For years, the restaurant operated with a six-seat sushi bar and half a dozen tables. In mid-2007, it expanded into an adjacent (though relatively nondescript) space.
Open Mondays through Fridays 11:30 am to 2 pm and 5 to 10 pm, Saturdays 5 to 10 pm.
