I'm planning on going to Sushi Yasuda sometime soon hopefully. Based on posts that I've read, it seems like for omakase dinner for two, people have spent anywhere from under $200 to over $300. Additionally, some people eat until they're stuffed, and others leave hungry...all around the same price tags.
Are certain cuts/fishes way more expensive than others at Yasuda? Considering it's all chef's pick, how do you find a compromise? I'd like to spend MAXIMUM $200-250 (including tax/tip for 2 people) but would still like to try some of Yasuda's best offers AND still be reasonably full. Not necessarily stuffed, but I definitely don't want to leave hungry.
Also, is there a big difference between ordering a la carte and doing omakase? Obviously the price is a huge difference, but is the quality significantly better for omakase for the price to be worth it?
Lastly, how far in advance should I make reservations if I want to sit in front of Yasuda at the bar? Does he work weekends too?
