I'm dreaming of Vancouver, as I often do. Truly a dining paradise, and I'm thinking specifically of Tojo's. Do any DC-area Japanese restaurants let you put yourself into the chef's hands?
Yes, you could just sit at the sushi bar or ask the waiter to bring out the chef's latest creations, but I prefer pre-set price points (Tojo's are $50, $75, $100, and $100+, plus $55 for vegetarian) over being rendered speechless when the bill arrives. :-)
