The ramen place you wait 45 minutes for also has a pretty good sushi spot just up the block. While the premium sushi and sashimi omakase is excellent, with hot dishes to start, a sashimi plate involving a lot of toro, and plenty of nigiri, there isn’t quite enough here to get you full - or justify the $120 price tag. At lunch, there’s a more reasonably priced $80 omakase, or you can do what everyone else here is doing and order one of the better-value (and still fantastic) chirashi bowls.
