I've been eating sushi for a good long while, but a couple months ago, I had the pleasure to stop by Kazu Sushi on Ventura. My experience there (just a regular dinner, not omakase) left me with a very strong desire to experience the proper thing. I received a job offer yesterday, so to celebrate, I finally decided to make it happen. Thus, I'm seeking your advice.
I'm in Studio City, but I'm willing to travel. My budget is around $150/pp (incl drinks, tax, tip), for four people. What would you guys recommend for my first time eating omakase? I think I'd prefer a place that's a little more flexible regarding the desires of its customers, but if that's not feasible I understand. Also, I strongly prefer traditional nigiri and sashimi - not really looking for a lot of cooked dishes.
