Recommendations on osechi (ryori) jubako to take home/give as a gift?

avial | Dec 13, 201402:14 AM     1

I'm looking to get some good friends a high end osechi jubako set from one of the 3 or 4 places that offer them to take home - Nippon, East, Katagiri, and Sunrise Mart (and Mitsuwa, if that falls within scope...).

I've read that each of these places offer different price points but it's hard to find online, exactly what the offerings are for a given price level.

Additionally, I'm now in San Francisco and not able to go to the said stores and look at them. I do plan to call the establishments but I think osechi have an important visual element as well. Short of hiring a TaskRabbit to run around the city and do this for me, I'm wondering if anyone here has experienced/consumed/purchased the osechi from the above noted establishments and what the general opinions of those are.

I also assume that they're already available at these locations and not something that you can only find the week leading into New Year's...and that it's not too late to order/reserve/pick up a set...

I've read these articles from previous years and some of the prices are eye-popping, but it's for some great friends.
