Need New Omakase Place...Not Masa

Husband's bday coming up. Want to try something new and spectacular. Been to all the usual suspects -- 15 east, Yasuda, Sushi Seki, Gari, Sasabune, Ushi...What am I missing??

      yasuda management has bad attitude. the eel varieties are good. better sushi at 15 east

        yeah try kuruma, but remember its usually about $200 / person (w/o drinks) also its not creative, its very traditional...just really really good cuts of fish

        1. Soto in the West Village is very highly regarded.

            you haven't tried the place yet? I'd have imagined you'd hit the place already; looking for superlative uni myself and that's what I hear . . .

              soto is good if Soto prepares your dishes

            2. you are definitely missing morimoto. i had an amazing night/dinner there. not only is the food great but the atmosphere is really something. not to mention morimoto himself was walking around and greeting dinner guests. it was pretty darn cool.

                sushi at morimoto isnt even close to the level of the above...some of their apps are great, not a huge fan of the main courses

                do like the atmosphere
