Headed to sushi with friends from out of town. I'm not usually a west-sider, but have enjoyed some outstanding meals at Nishino, Mashiko and Kisaku. While we're not rowdy (a la college aged saki-bombs) but at the same time I can see us having some sake and doing some serious laughing. At the same time, we really appreciate a good meal.
I think of my last visits to Kisaku and Nishino, and I think we would be disruptive. Wanting to stay downtown and not deal with getting to West Seattle. Any suggestions on a decent omakase in a lively atmosphere? Japonessa? Umi Sushi House? I haven't been to either, so I'm looking for your direction.
Thanks in advance!
