best traditional omakase for $80-90?

thadj | Apr 20, 2011 09:05 PM

I'm looking for a traditional sushi omakase experience, where I sit at the bar, tell the chef some general preferences and the chef paces the meal, piece-by-piece. I'm looking to spend in the neighborhood of ~$80 per person, so obviously I need to be able to specify a price range. We won't be drinking alcohol (grean tea or water only). i'm looking for sushi (and sashimi), not so much cooked foods. Some obvious things - looking for quality and variety of fish, quality of rice. We're not looking to get stuffed but also don't want to leave the restaurant hungry. ideally the restaurant would take reservations for sunday.


based on what i've read, it sounds like if I tried to do this as yasuda, 15 east or kuruma zushi, they would laugh at me. ushiwakamaru and kanoyama seem to come up as less pricey, although i've also heard kanoyama can be very expensive too and doesn't take weekend reservations. and i feel like every restaurant does things a little bit differently, so i'm kinda confused.

thanks in advance for your help!
