Asian-Latin Fusion cuisine at Elan!

This was the perfect meal for a frosty January night!  Elan is a relatively new restaurant in the flatiron area of NYC with a decidedly Asian-Latino flavored menu.  We had the Uni-Guacamole with Taro chips, Mushroom-truffle croquettes, Seafood sausage, Striped bass and Miso glazed shortrib with wasabi-scallion mashed potatoes.
