Apparently this place has been open for 6+ months already, and I'm surprised no one has sung its praises here yet. It's perhaps the best sushi I've ever had. Went last night, sat at the sushi bar - highly recommended - and got the $50 omakase. The chef was awesome - super-friendly, interested in what our preferences were, really creative, and fun. The fish was incredibly high quality, and each bite melted in my mouth. We ended up getting more than the 3 courses that the menu says you get for $50 -- I get the sense the chef bends the rules a bit in that way if you're a really enthusiastic sushi-lovah, like my friend and I are. Sushi of Gari gets props in this city, and I've been there twice, but I definitely think Sushi UO is better.
