Chef-owner James Wang has respect for the sea's bounty, and he distinguishes his sushi joint from the many others with fish that is is impeccably fresh and cut with precision. Among the ornate rolls is the Vrice-free golden egg roll, a paper-thin egg crepe enfolding spicy tuna, eel, avocado and asparagus; purists will want to try the sushi deluxe platter, which includes fluke.
