Fate of Hamano Sushi?

These new sushi postings reminded me of something....

A couple of months back, I heard that my favorite sushi joint, Hamano Sushi on Castro in Noe Valley, was changing owners. Has anyone been there recently? Are the same sushi chefs still there, especially Sugai? Is the quality still the same?

IMHO, I prefer Hamano over Kabuto. The one and only time we went to Kabuto, we sat at the sushi bar, but the quality of the fish didn't seem as good as Hamano. Maybe we went on a bad night? For those of you who have been to Hamano, Kabuto, Ebisu, Grandeho and all those other places known for good sushi, where do you think has the best sushi?
