Best sushi in the Bay Area - price no object

I'm looking for the best sushi in the Bay Area. By best I mean most authentic and freshest. Price is no object. I'm trying to see if I can save myself a trip to NY or LA. Amazingly, and I think I caught them on their best day ever, but the most outstanding sushi I've had in this area was at a lunch at Chaya (I know...unexpected).

  1. Best Ankimo IMHO is at Ino, although I don't know if their other sushi's can be considered the best in the bay area, but Ino ranks up there with the best.

    1. Sakae Sushi in Burlingame gets my vote.

      1. It depends on what kind of sushi you like - dynamic, huge pieces of toro or subtle, sweet pieces of hirame. I am not a big fan of the former, so I can't help you there, but with Anzu in flux, I'd put my vote on Ino for the latter style. I have yet to try Kaygestu though - although they are not really a sushi-house, I hear their fish is supreme.

        1. i've heard many times about a joint called Sawa Sushi in Sunnyvale, still a round? any good?

          this joint litereally charged customers a few hundred dollars per person.

          1. I've been there. It's one of the "giant pieces of big fat toro"-type places.
