Yet another sushi question

SouthernGent | Jul 17, 2006 06:34 PM

I'm looking for a traditional sushi bar omakase experience. I love the Nobu/Morimoto stuff, but for this trip I really want the traditional kind of joint. We actually prefer sashimi, but I'm cool with most anything. Things I value would be top-notch fish (of course) and a wide variety of interesting selections unavailable in my provincal southern haunts. Things I care nothing about include hipness, decor and price. I suppose if two places are equally great, I'd just as soon not light money on fire, but this is a splurge trip anyhow.

I would award bonus points if it was a place that could convince me that uni was great like everyone else seems to think, because I'm not a fan so far. My local sushi chef assures me that they can't get the really good stuff, so I'm all for getting the definitive answer. I also love a really heavenly tamago.

Based on stuff I've read here, I'm leaning towards Sushi Yasuda since the only recurring negatives I've seen are that you might get rushed if you arrive late and that sashima omakase is likely to get pricey. I also have seen things that interest me about Jewel Bako, Kuruma Zushi and Sushi Gari.
