Neo Sushi (83rd / B'way)??

Has anyone been to Neo Sushi on this list? I've heard great things but I wanted to solicit some chowhoundish opinion as well. Please let me know what you think and if there are any "must haves" on the menu.
It's a good place, but expensive. Some of the more untraditional dishes were the best. I particularly remember loving the black cod.

I agree. As an Angelino with quite a bit of great sushi around, I was shocked at the prices for what was not even close to a truely great sushi experience. I did not care for the sauce on top of the tuna sushi(it might have been fatty tuna) and thought that the tuna tartar was absolutely ordinary. The black cod was delicious, but at the prices they list it seems impossible that a better meal could not be had. At least, I hope so since I'm moving in around the corner soon. R-23, Hideki, Hirozen, Nori and many others here in LA are perhaps 1/5 the price and do a better job with the sushi, appetizers notwithstanding. Is there great sushi at non-Neo prices to be found in Manhattan?
I have had nothing but great experiences at Neo (although it is not cheap). I would recommend the ahi with hot peppers. Also, I've enjoyed sitting at the bar and having the chef make whatever he wishes.
