ISO Great Sushi and Sashimi, Omakase Style

I want to go out for an evening of omakase sushi and sashimi. I'm happy to order a simple miso soup and green salad a la carte, if need be, but I'd like the rest of my experience to be exclusively sushi and sashimi (meaning no cooked dishes from the kitchen and no new-fangled deep-fried rolls with wacky sauces drizzled over the pieces). What places should I visit? I'm thinking Zen, for starters, but should I reconsider my bias against dreary hole-in-the-wall Hiro? What about some of the other places around the GTA? Who has top-notch fish? I can reserve Kaji and Hashimoto for other deep pocket special occasions when I'm feeling like cooked dishes, but for a night of just sushi and sashimi, where will I have the best experience? I won't state a price, but I'd be interested to know what omakase prices are at the various restaurants that get suggested. Depending on quality and quantity, I'd be willing to spend anywhere from $35-100+ per person. I have no problem shelling out a bit extra knowing I'll be getting an opportunity to try some really special fresh delicacies.
