Three weeks ago, a new little sushi spot replaced Tibet First, the little Tibetan place in the University District that closed down because it couldn't find the right chef. Village Sushi will serve up the obvious, plus traditional Japanese favorites, including noodles, salads, and teriyaki. Sounds like the 45-seat joint exceeds the Ave's price standards (the manager told me guest checks average $15 to $20 per person) but hopefully that means the sushi itself will top other UD options, as well.
Dinner reservations accepted.
