Finally made it here for dinner. Made a rez for 8:30 and there were a few empty tables and seats at the bar. I ordered the omakase and was inpressed at how delicious everything was. Luckily, I was seated right in front of Keizo and I was given a huge amount of sushi I can't remember how many pieces or everything I had, but the standouts were the oyster, butterfish, toro/bluefin combo, ikura/uni combo, red snapper, ama ebi (alas, no fried head). I loved the juice at the end and the blue crab roll. Chef Keizos hands were flying as he made each order and the total with a great glass of sake was $106 without tip. About twice as much as I expected to spend but hey, you only live once. I would love to take my hubby here but will stick to ala cart since the sticker shock might do him in.
I did glance at my itemized bill and everything was from $2.50 to $8 except one piece that was $13. It may have been the Shima aji. The sake (Hakkaisan) was $12.
There are few times that I am stuffed after sushi and this was one of them.
I do wonder what they do with that huge stove behind the counter though.
To top it off, I went home and had red velvet cake from Jamaica's Cakes. Too good!
