Asanebo - price alert!!

Had dinner at Asanebo in Studio City Saturday night. As usual the omakase was fabulous. First course was warm spinach salad with portobello mushroom, followed by another course with 5 small apps (salmon roe, some kind of seaweed concoction, homemade tofu, squid, etc.) Then live scallop sashimi topped with beluga caviar, a seafood soup, a kobe beef course, and some others I'm forgetting. Ended with chocolate souflee (sp?) with vanilla ice cream.

Last time I was there the omakase was $65 pp, this time they charged me $105!! With tax & tip & a couple drinks $146. Luckily my company was picking up the tab. I have to say that as much as I like the food I won't be going back any time soon on my own dime, I'll be heading across the street to Tama instead.
