Two girlfriends and I are meeting for dinner this Friday and we want to do sushi/Japanese tasting menu.
Anyone have any suggestions? We are all not single, so bar scene, etc. not necessary except as it may add to the general conviviality of the place. We've considered and rejected: The Hump (overpriced), Kiriko (not wild about the location, but may reconsider, since the food's so good), Takao (too pricey), Noma (also a bit dull in terms of atmosphere).
I was thinking of Hama in Venice, but would be open to someplace new with good/great sushi and active atmosphere.
Thanks for the help!
