So my beloved SO just informed me that he hasn’t made reservations for my birthday dinner this weekend (it’s just the two of us) - he sometimes just throws his hands up and says “why don’t you decide where we should go?”
I tend to use my birthday dinner as a chance to get him to take me to a sushi, upscale izakaya or washoku restaurant. In the past, we’ve gone to the following places:
Kinjiro (thank you FTC’ers for suggesting this over Shibumi!)
I’m looking for a place of the same quality, and around the same cost as these restaurants. n/naka is out because of having to make reservations so far in advance - and I think it might be a bit pricier than what we’d like. We’d be happy to go to the westside, DTLA, the South Bay, or central LA, or SGV. I have a preference for a place that is not just a sushi place.
Finally - I’ve gone ahead and made reservations at Shiki, as a “backup” - but it could certainly be where we end up. I was wondering whether both of us would have to order the same omakase as long as we ordered at the same price point - for example, could one of us order the $140 modern sushi kaiseki, and the other order the $140 shiki omakase.
As always, much thanks in advance!
