Yasuda - table as good as the bar?

hamstrman | Oct 23, 2007 08:28 PM

I'm going to Yasuda for the second time ever, but this time all my friends wanted to come. The person on the phone told me Yasuda could only serve 4 people at a time, which I'm pretty sure isn't true because I remember 4 other people besides my friend and I being served by him last time I was there with a friend. So this time we were forced to reserve a table. I'm concerned that the sushi will be less than heavenly if it's not by Yasuda himself. Also, I'm concerned I won't be able to order omakase if it's at a table (since clearly it can't be served one piece at a time).

Will I be disappointed having gone from in front of Yasuda to a table meal? Also, will I not be able to get chef's choice if I am seated at a table? Will anything be different other than the experience of having Yasuda talk with you and explain what you are getting? I know the restaurant can't go wrong, but I'm worried about my expectations being too high now. I don't want a tuna and salmon platter. I want interesting and different like I got last time. Please let me know what to expect.
Oh, and on a side note having nothing to do with this thread, I want to ask guttergourmet if he writes reviews of the sushi restaurants he visits because I would like to read his thoughts on certain places without having to sift through chowhound boards. I hope he comes across this thread.
