Omakase for two around $150. Other sushi rec's?

I am just starting to appreciate sushi without overpowering it with wasabi and soy. What are your reccomendations for two people ordering omakase and keeping it around $150 before drinks and tip?
Also, what other less expensive sushi spots do you like for nights when keeping the budget smaller?
I like Inase on the Upper East Side for that price range.

I've had great experiences in that price range at Inase and Shimizu. Less so at Sushiden, but maybe I was unlucky.
Try Jewel Bako omikase for very good sushi and it's less expensive than 15 East and Yasuda. Since your first appreciating sushi you should go to Sushi Gari or Sushi Seki and try some new style sushi, you will probably like it. Takahachi is less expensive , lots of innovative rolls. Kanoyama omakase will be too expensive but they have less expensive things to eat ala carte. Sushi Samba is good to try for another version of sushi, and Aki on W 4th street

85 Avenue A, New York, NY 10009
I must respectfully disagree with foodwhisperer. There is no reason anyone should ever eat at Sushisamba.
That is a tight budget if you want anything other than sushi. But you can have a very nice sushi meal at Hatsuhana (on 48th) for that price. You could tell the sushi chef $75 omakase and eat very well.
