Sushi Mori Tonight--feeling intimidated...

empecot | Oct 6, 2010 10:05 AM

My husband and I are visiting L.A. this week and are going to Mori tonight for our anniversary.

Although we've done a decent amount of traveling and eaten at many great restaurants, we've only done high(ish) end sushi omakase once. It was delicious, but we certainly didn't feel like we knew enough about Japanese food to fully appreciate it.

We have reservations to sit at the bar, which I've read is a must, and we plan on getting the omakase.
So, my questions are:

1. Generally, how much is the omakase there? I've read around $125, but I also came across someone who said it was in the $200's.
I just don't want my husband to have a heart attack when the bill comes :-)

2. What do people generally wear there? I figured it was at least business casual, but I guess I'm trying to determine what the crowd is like. Young and Hip? Older and more "foodie-ish"?

3. I've read that the omakase includes a decent amount of cooked dishes as well as sushi, which is fine with me. I'm just trying to get a better sense of what to expect and if there's anything we should specify.

Anyway, thanks in advance for your help!
