My wife and I wanted to go to a nice sushi restaurant for New Year's. Our regular awesome sushi spot - Sushi Yasuda - was closed. Not sure why, but that is for another post. In any event, we got the Zagat's guide and called a few places, but they were either booked or closed. Sushi Seki it was. First, this is not a place that you get dressed up to go to. It looks just like any other neighborhood place. The sushi was ok - the fish was satisfactory, but the rest of the sushi rolls, well, they did not compare with how Sushi Yasuda's rolls melt in your mouth with pure sushi goodness. Maybe our expectations were too high, maybe we didn't have a great experience because we didn't do the special tasting menu. I don't know. All I know is that it wasn't worth the price. And it didn't help that they charged an extra dollar per roll for cucumber. Which reminds me of another deficiency - my wife and I routinely order one order of edamame each, because, well, we like edamame. At this place, however, the two orders we got were less than one order at Yasuda. Therefore, we would not recommend this place to anyone.
