i am mulling over where to go for sushi this saturday ... and would love some input from fellow chowhounds!
My standard "nice" sushi restuarant choices have been chinoise (madison or queen anne) and shiro's. my last couple trips to chinoise madison have produced somewhat disappointing service (ex: an hour to get sushi order) and flubbed orders; i have been to chinoise queen anne many times (with great food), but it is always packed, and i guess i just want a new atmosphere. shiro's food is wonderful, but i am looking for something with a bit more ambience this weekend.
i was considering nishino, mashiko, or saito's. anyone eaten at these spots recently? other favs? i haven't eaten at nishino or saito in over a year, and never mashiko. i am leaning toward nishino, but i can't remember how pricey it is! ... does anyone have an idea about its cost relative to other sushi spots?
