        is the same joint, that's a husband and wife team, and also offers an omakase for around 25 bucks/ thanks. i think this is it.

          maybe it's not the right place, one look at the menu on-line and it didn't seem that interesting.

            Perhaps you are thinking of a different place. That being said, a lot of the selections that I ordered were from their daily specials, and I did enjoy it quite a bit (although, if nothing from their regular menu looked interesting, the daily specials might not be to your taste either).
