Yakko San vs Matsuri?

eatnbmerry | Dec 22, 2007 10:22 PM

Dear Chowhounds,

I want to have a special meal between X-Mas and New Years. So based on my intent to "pork out" on either end, I thought that Japanese would help to somewhat clear out the arteries in between.

I've read how Yakko San does not do sushi per se, but does have sashimi. I've also read that the recently reopened Matsuri has a stellar rep among many hounds as the best sushi in our area and would imagine that they have equally great sashimi as well.

What I need your help with is: Whose sashimi would you pick? What menu item would be your favorite/or must order at each place? Are the prices similar? Is there a variety of sake available at each? I know Hiro does tempura does Matsuri also have (a member of my party doesn't like raw anything, oh well, more hamachi for the rest of us:)).

Thank you Chowhounds in advance for your enlightment and opinions.!
