I've read a lot of the sushi posts and decided on Sushi of Gari. When I called (last night for a next Friday reservation…it’s my husbands birthday) for a reservation, I opted for a table b/c I didn’t want to wait until 9:30 to eat at the sushi bar (i hope the table will be ok..thoughts??). Based on what chowhounders have said, I chose Gari b/c it seems more innovative (someone else’s word, not mine) than Yasuda. I’ll be honest, we like some accompaniments with raw fish. I have a couple questions…we’re not planning on doing the omakase, but can anyone remember some great items to order a la carte (and I’m guessing not on the menu). I read that it’s great idea to point to other peoples plates and order like that, which I don’t mind doing, but would love some suggestions. Also, are most of their items sushi and sashimi or do they do ‘creative rolls’ as well… Bottom line, I’d like a memorable fun meal with my husband for his birthday. Thanks for the advice…and if you have a better suggestion that Gari, let me know.
