Sticker shock at Sushi Shibucho

My fiance and I are sushi fanatics and thought we'd try Shibucho since I had heard they were great and that they serve foie gras there as well, which i have been craving. Well we had a great meal there and didn't think too much about the fact that there was no menu and no prices listed. We ate our usual amount of sushi (which at say Nishimura's would run about $70) and also ordered 1 foie gras (but they accidentally gave us 2 which we happily ate, i mean how expensive could they really be). We also had a couple large Asahi's. I knew it would be expensive but we were shocked when the bill came and it was $190 (add $30 for tip!). Had I known, I probably would have gotten my foie gras somewhere else. Great food but not really worth the price.
