Sushi near Wonder Ballroom

My friends and I are traveling down to Portland on Friday to see The Walkmen and Beach House at the Wonder Ballroom and I'm looking for suggestions for great sushi places nearby. If you could included a little about the atmosphere, price, menu, and beer selection that would be helpful too. Thanks!

  1. What price range and quality do you want? There's nothing all that close. Either of these is a ten minute drive.

    Sushiland conveyor belt sushi is on NE Broadway at 14th. Not great, but is fast and cheap.

    Other end of the spectrum is Hiroshi, our finest sushi. Artistic, original, fresh, mind-blowing.
    But expensive!

    1. FYI - Toro Bravo is a very popular and good Spanish tapas restaurant next to the Wonder Ballroom. You can expect a wait, though on a Friday. There's a bar called Secret Society above Toro Bravo that has some light food, too.

      Nearby is ALU ( which might be a good place to try out, too.
