Omakawase (sp?) dinners at Shibucho on Beverly.

Does anyone have any experience with any of these dinners? What dishes are included that sort of thing? Is it worth the experience, since I have heard the main sushi chef is kind of difficult and inhospitable.
Any comments appreciated? And are we talking more than $50 for these dinners. Thanks in advance.

    When I had omakase at Shibucho it was a hundred bucks per person. And that was the minimum (!!!) as chef Shige informed us when we ordered. Still, one of the best meals I've ever had.

    Apparently, it can be significantly less expensive if you order items a la carte.

    Question: are you sure the place is still in operation? There was a rumor on this board that Shibucho had closed.

      It's closed now? I didn't know that. Did someone mention that on the boards earlier?

      Regarding "Omakawase (sp?)"

      Should be "Omakase".
