Jewel Bako or Sushi of Gari for omakase sushi??

Darwin | Jan 1, 2004 06:44 PM

I'm planning on going to one of these restaurants for omakase in early Jan at the sushi bar. I've heard mixed reviews about Gari's table service, but I hear that sitting at the sushi bar for omakase is awesome. Jewel Bako sounds good too, but I'm concerned that it's all hype and no real substance.

I'm planning on spending about $75 per person (for 2 people). Jewel Bako's omakase is either $50 for sushi or sashimi, or $85 for a full dinner. I believe Gari's omakase starts at around $50 and the customer can set the price. Does anyone have futher details?

Can anyone give me some advice on which one to go to?
