Dining at Hidden Omakase feels a lot like sitting through a timeshare pitch. Despite being an established restaurant, Hidden operates like a pop-up with an extended lease and a hefty price tag. Dinner starts at $175 per person, and the only drink available is water (people can BYOB or order booze from a delivery app). Like some kind of awkward conference orientation, every meal starts with an uncomfortable icebreaker where everyone shares what they’re celebrating, and sometimes there's a plug for gift cards mid-dinner.

Despite the attempt at forced fun, the nigiri here just isn’t good. The rice is overly sweet and the thick slices of fish are too cold, difficult to eat in one bite, and curiously bland. However, the boat noodle soup served at the end is excellent—it has just the right amount of funky spice. And if any of the evening’s a la carte options include the spicy duck laab hand roll, order it. But if you are more into sushi than showmanship, try one of the other sushi spots around town instead.
