Tomoe Sushi Serious Slippage

I went to Tomoe Sushi yesterday for the weekend sushi/sashimi lunch deal and I'm sorry to say I have really bad news. The owner/chef has moved to a new location and no longer works there. He now works at his other restaurant. Here's the info:

Toku Shin
28 West Putnam Ave.
Greenwich CT 06830
T 203.661.1600

The difference was evident immediately. There were no sprouts in ponzu on the table, hot towels were not offered. The normal long cut 1/2 inch sashimi had been reduced to a 1/4 inch thick slice- not the best cuts of fish- sloppy slicing in general- The number of peices of fish you get with the lunch have decreased. The the peices of sashimi were placed on top of a pile of slivered kombu and it stuck to/ coated the backside of the fish- I noticed lots of people cleaning their fish off before eating it. Tomago was fishy and warm. White fish wasn't of the quality we're used to either. * what a difference. The prices on the menu have been raised- The menu has changed allthogether- there used to be two columns for everything either luch price or dinner price, now the only things available for lunch price are the combo, sushi and sashimi lunch- charashi was completely gone :( Another fave of mine the uni ika was also removed. I swear I heard taps playing faintly as we walked out the door. -
