looking for great sushi anywhere near downtown

i used to live in Chicago ( lincoln park ) back in the early nineties and ate all my sushi at either Sai Cafe or Kamehachi on Wells. I am now traveling to Chicago for business about once a month and would like an update on where to go for very fresh sushi.
I went to Kamehachi on a recent trip and was disappointed. The sushi was all pre-sliced, there was not a lot of variety, and it was not as fresh as I would have liked. I have not been back to Sai Cafe. I am not looking for a trendy, overpriced, scene type restaurant that makes lots of crunchy, sauced-up rolls. Just somewhere where I can get a good variety of very fresh fish cut to order for nigiri sushi and sashimi.
