Just how expensive IS Ginza Sushiko!?!?!?

JustinRush | Apr 27, 200104:11 PM     3

I've long heard that Ginza Sushiko is probably the finest Sushi Restaurant in the U.S., and also by far the most expensive. I read a post a while back that said one can expect to spend 200-300 dollars per person to eat there. So I asked a guy I know who eats out a lot on an extremely high-end corpoarte account (he works for a bank and is constantly wining and dining people) if this was true. He gave a sneering chuckle and said "no, it is much more expensive than that". I thought that he was just blowing smoke, so I pressured him to tell me how much. He said he regularly spends four to five hundred per person, sometimes more!

So I'm wondering, has anyone been there recently? Is it really that expensive? Are there any recent highly detailed reviews of this place? What could they possibly be serving to warrant such a price tag? Does the price reflect the quality of food/service/knowledge etc. or is it just to keep the riff-raff (i.e. me) out? Inquiring minds want to know!

peace and grub y'all
