High-end sushi in the city?

Gin n Tonic | Mar 29, 2012 04:44 PM

I've read some of the other sushi threads but still have some questions. I don't get out to SoCal much, and have never been to San Diego, but will be going there for a conference in a couple of months, at the Convention Center, staying nearby. I will not have a car. I am looking for a high-end traditionalist sushi experience, but every rec I've seen is kind of far. Questions:

Is there anything worthwhile that's walkable or in reach of public transit? Is it reasonable to take a cab to Ota or Shirahama? If I do, will I get a cab back? Would the cost of that be such that I should just rent a car for the evening; if I do that, should I then just drive up to Kaito in Encinitas?

What I'm looking for is more along the lines of a small old-school OC-type place, as opposed to a glossy LA type of place, but quality above all. Price is no object.
