Kaiseki not to exceed roughly $150 per person for 4

Looking for a kaiseki place to have a get-together with friends, I'd like to to be about $150 per person drinks excluded and if at all possible in a private or semi-private setting.

Any recommendations?

  1. Sugiyama would fit your price range though I'm not sure whether you'll find private or semi-private setting within the restaurant.

    1. Kyo Ya is the bomb, and they've a lovely private room. Of course, since their three-star from the NYT, rezzies may be difficult - but worth a try.

        Kyo ya is the best. But I don't believe they have a private room.its more of a private area ,not enclosed,like kaiseki in Japan

          Yeah if I recall correctly it is in an area in back beside the kitchen and sushi prep counter. It is in an area though that no customers would normally pass since there are no tables in that area and the washrooms are before it. I guess it would qualify as semi-private.

      2. Only been to Kyo Ya and thought it was amazing. Call ahead to reserve the long format.
