Oishii in the South End is your spot if (1) you like your high-end omakase experience to have more variety than just nigiri, or (2) you’re celebrating a major life change but can’t get into O Ya (Oishii can usually accommodate walk-ins). The omakase here is $200 for nine courses - which is less than you get at O Ya, but each course tends to be bigger and features more things, like steak tartare with crispy rice, tempura, and poached lobster. It isn’t two hours of simple raw fish, but it is outstanding, and you also have the option of ordering a la carte if you want more control.
