news from sushi zo

for those folks who don't care for omakase,
sushi zo now has a sushi menu with prices for the nigri and rolls.
also, tonight the bill came with an itemized list of everything i ordered.
(as i recall someone on this board was complaining about this a while back--saying that they didn't like getting a bill that wasn't itemized. well now that complaint is handled.).

the per piece sushi prices ranged from about $2.20 on up to market price.
the sushi was magnificent, as usual.

      We've only been twice and we made a reservation each time. I like that they'll take a reservation for the sushi bar because lots of places won't. It can be as fast or as slow as you want, also depending on how busy he is. Both times we've asked him to slow down a bit which he gracefully did.

    2. as i recall, there always has been an itemized sushi menu like any other place. i was able to see the breakdown of my bill and that's how i caught several mistakes. it's not tough to get a bar seat. i've done walk-in twice successfully on fri nights. to be safe, just reserve a day in advance. it takes about 2 hrs for omakase.

        Thank you, sir. One more if I may, how much is omakase?

        1. re: PommeDeGuerre

          it depends on how much you eat and what gets served to you.
          neither the dishes served nor the amount charged is the same from time to time.

          i really like this set up because it gives me an opportunity to try new things everytime.
          unlike some on this board, i have always felt that i've more than gotten my money's worth at sushi zo.

      2. Omakase starts at $70+, depending on what's in season and how much you eat.

        1. some of us bring it up to 150 pp + sake, but that isn't the norm
