Any omakase experiance possible in MTL?

I've often times watched with envy as sushi chefs gushed with creativity and served guests what THEY thought was best (but only on foodnetwork...).
Omakase style where you put your trust in the chef and he decides what you're gonna eat.
I've eaten sushi at a dozen or so 'mainstream' restaurants in Montreal (the likes of Sho-Dan, Tokira (formerly Koji's), Bishoku, Miyako, Sakura, Kaizan, etc etc), but I feel if I asked about this, their chef will simply put together "Sushi/Sashimi plate, 29 pieces" or something like that.
I might have had more confidence in Sho-dan a few years ago, but with their 'star' chefs scattered to the wind, I dunno.
Any thoughts? emerilcantcook mentioned Tri Express back in February, but was somewhat vague.
Or do I wait for Manhatten?
