Sushi-imbecile desperately seeking help

hyacinthgirl | Jun 15, 2009 12:15 PM

Hello everyone,
Embarrassed to admit it, but here it is: I don't eat sushi.
My boyfriend does. Loves it, it's his favorite thing.
As it's his birthday, I was planning to take him to Sushi Zo, as I'd seen it batted around this board so much. However, the most recent post about Sushi Zo made it seem like an expensive, miserable, unfriendly place.

So here are my questions:
1. Is Sushi Zo only Omakase? I saw a reference to having to have the omakase, so I wanted to check
2. Is there any moderately priced sushi place that is also westside that people would recommend over sushi zo? I went with some friends to the Hump a few years back and they were mostly disappointed... I could spend about $100 just on him (since I'll pretty much just be having a glass of sake or a bowl of miso or otherwise going "along for the ride")

Thank you for your help. I'm completely out of my element here!
