Arashi Sushi soft-opened earlier this month at 11th and Hope.

South Park residents in search of sushi got their commutes cut down this month when Arashi -- Japanese for 'storm' -- opened its doors at 11th and Hope. The casual eatery serves lunch specials that run from $9.95 to $16.95.

For that you get five pieces of sushi -- one each of tuna, salmon, albacore, white tuna and white fish -- plus one main item and a miso soup. A la carte offerings include sushi rolls, soups, salads, and hot and cold appetizers.

The menu is also available for take out.

Art on the wall is the creation of Samantha Turnbull. The pieces depicting music icons such as Madonna, Prince, and Jimi Hendrix are just hanging while Turnbull creates new work for the restaurant, but owner George Peykar says the current installation has gotten quite a lot of notice.

Right now the establishment is in its soft opening phase. They've applied for a beer and wine license, and a happy hour is a planned addition once that is approved. For now you can enjoy iced green tea and fountain drinks.

Arashi Sushi / 1111 S. Hope St #100 / 213. 749.1900 / Open Monday - Friday from 11am to 11pm (closed 3-5pm daily)
