sushi/omakase for around $100/person?

I'm looking to take my sister out for her birthday dinner this week. I want to find an omakase place to go to that's closer to $100/person. The places I've been before have been closer to $150-$200 per person. They were worth every penny, but I'm trying to see if I can stay a little more within my budget this time. Let me know if anyone might have suggestions.

lol, just for kicks, does anyone know how much the average is per person at Sushi Zo these days? I've been craving it, but heard that prices have gone up pretty high.

    1. Try Mori, which will run you around anywhere from 100-150/person for omakase.

      Might also consider Kiyokawa.

      Re: Zo. Omakase last time I was there was close about 185/person. Well worth it, though.

        in the days when mori and sushi zo were both on my regular rotation, omakase at mori always cost me more than it did at zo.

          you used to be fan of Zo, you don't visit any longer?

          i still think in my opinion his sushi is wityhin the top 3 in town for my tastes.

            it's not the food, my finances these days don't allow for such extravagances. i would LOVE to resume being a regular at zo.

          2. re: westsidegal

            That is no longer the case. Now Zo is just as much, sometimes more than Mori. I've been to both at least 3 times in the past year.

            yeah, zo is getting very high, i don't remember eating that much, and it was at least 130 without tax, tip, and drinks.

              i love kiyokawa. wish i could remember how much omakase was last time... i didn't pay, so i was a grateful rather than money-focused patron...

              1. re: Emme

                I seem to recall somewhere around $85 when I was there earlier this year...and well worth it!

            2. Maybe Go's Mart.

              Omakase ranges from 80 to 150 when I talked to them, but usually it's in the higher range, meaning at least 140 and up.

              1. What area, and what's your preference?
                BTW, your best bet might be to call a restaurant in advance, tell them your special occasion and omakase budget and let them do the rest. There was an article in Kategaiho International that suggested that for better sushi restaurants in Japan.

                  i'm looking for something in west la, but i'll drive pretty much anywhere for good food... thanks everyone! i'll take a look at kiyokawa... mori + zo are at the top of my list, but i'm going to try to be good this year... thanks cls, i like the tip about letting the restaurant know about your budget beforehand... lol, that would probably be a little less dangerous than walking in and saying 'feed me' :-)

                    Kiriko would also be a very good option for this.
