Matsutake - anybody agree?

Wife has been saying "you absolutely have to go to this sushi lunch buffet, it is to die for!" I'm referring to Matsutake in Ballston.

My impression: "You look lovely, dear, thank you for bringing me!" plus (to myself) "This is exactly the same, item for item, as the (now closed) Appetizer Plus in Rosslyn, except better decor." Unobjectionable sushi, identical hot buffet (including very good tempura), both sushi and hot buffet having a few less items than Appetizer Plus had. Altogether, just fine but nothing to slog through the parking crunch in Ballston for when I could get ALMOST as good at some (not all) buffets elsewhere.

Agree? Disagree? Anybody know if it's the same management? (I understood Appetizer Plus was owned by the owner of Matubs).
