Had a good hour and a half before the Ricky Jay show last Saturday night, and was unfamiliar with the local sushi places... Took a flier on Hide, based on the citysearch reviews. It was more or less as described - No frills, but the price/quality ratio was superb. Very, very fresh tasting fish, friendly chef amenable to a custom roll we requested (chopped yellow-tail, shiso, yellow pickles - daikon, I guess?). We had a fair but not too large dinner and a couple beers and got out for $60 with tip. We were there early and had no wait to sit at the sushi bar, though by the time we left every seat was filled. And we still had an hour to kill.
