Cube 63 recent disappointment

I've always liked Cube 63 though I haven't been in a long time. When they first opened I was blown away and though them to be superior to the nearby Osaka. I went in this weekend and was so so so disappointed. I ordered among other dishes ( which were fine, even good) a sashimi platter that was the saddest most uninspired plate I've ever ordered, and for $18 I was a bit po'ed. The size of the sashimi cuts were easily 1/2 of what I'm used to either at Cube 63 or anywhere else. The fish was fresh enough and tasty but the portions were obviosuly feeling th recession. Bummer. I'll never go back.

Don't get me wrong, I know y sushi and I'm not expecting Peter Luger size portions but this was ridiculous.
