Inoue is not the kind of sushi place where you can order a couple rolls and get in and out in 45 minutes. This is a place where the fish is flown in from Japan, the chef makes his own blend of soy sauce, and there are two different types of rice for the nigiri (chosen according to the weight and flavor of each fish). In other words: this is a place to come if you are serious about your sushi. You can do a la carte here, but omakase at the bar is the best way to watch the chef work his magic - it starts at $52 for nine pieces.
