I am going to be going to the Comedy Cellar in a few weeks on a Saturday and decided I would start the evening off with a Sushi dinner for 2 before hand. I have narrowed my list of restaurants down to Le Miu or Kanoyama as both seem to fit in to my budget of $100-$150 - keeping in mind that we will not be spending too much on alcohol - in other words, no premium wine or Sake.
I would like people's feed back in terms of making a final selection.
1) Overall general question how does the Sushi and Sashimi compare between the 2?
2)Any strong recommendations as to what to order at each place, particularly from the sushi or sashimi side of things but also, is there anything from the Kitchen? I am looking for recommendations in terms of the not to be missed things on their menu!
Some questions about each place:
They don't take reservations on Saturday according to the website but they claim there is not much waiting if we arrive before 7:30. So let's say I arrive between 6:15 and 6:45. Am I going to have to wait long for a dinner for 2?
2) Le Miu.
I read elsewhere on the board that they have declined and are not as good as they once were. What do people think. Is it still a great place? Is there any sense that it is riding on past reputations? I am particularly interested in the quality of their sushi and sashimi and the variety.
Cheers and thanks to everyone! Very much looking forward to this coming trip to Manhattan!
