Blue Smoke & Jewel Bako questions

amp156 | Dec 20, 2003 04:18 PM

I thought I remember someone posting on a Super Bowl party at Blue Smoke that seemed worthwhile for what the price included. I can't find the post & there is nothing on the website. Anyone have any info??

We went to Jewel Bako last night, a destination that I had been wanting to get to since reading galleygirls amazing post (link below) several months ago. We both ordered the $50 omakase and were disappointed by what we got. It was great sushi, but nothing like her post. We weren't able to get a seat at the sushi bar, and were in and out in under 1.5 hours. We were served a miso soup and a platter of 12 pieces of sushi. That was it, except for an appetizer and dessert that we ordered separately. Midway though the meal I asked Jack if what we received was the omakase or if it was the sushi platter, and he confirmed it was the omakase. It seems that we would have been better off ordering by the piece. What's the deal??
