R23 Omakase anyone?

Im going to take a trip to R23 and was wondering if they have omakase. If so, does anyone know how it is, how much it runs?

  1. Sushi Gen is a much better choice for Omakase at the Sushi Bar.
    R-23 has a wonderful Mixed Green Salad with Dungeness Crab and that's about it.

    1. There are places I'd rather go for omakase, but the dungeness crab salad, though heavenly, is NOT "about it." There's a wonderful lobster tempura, a delicious yellowtail carpaccio with assorted caviars, yummy mochi, and some good sushi, including the best-in-town albacore, very good yellowtail belly, and perfectly prepared fresh water eel. But having said that, the specials and the unique atmosphere are what make R23 worth it, more so than the sushi.
