Chīsai Sushi Club
Quality, sub-$100 omakase isn’t exactly easy to find in SF. Luckily, Chīsai Sushi Club exists. The tiny Bernal Heights spot offers $90 omakase that includes 13 courses of nigiri, sashimi, hand rolls, and mini taiyakis for dessert. Aside from not costing half a month’s rent, everything that lands on the table is well-executed and excellent across the board. They also have a 17-course option for $120, plus a 13-course ($70) vegetarian version with things like confit leek and asparagus nigiri. Whatever you choose, just know the non-nigiri dishes lean smaller, so if you want to leave completely full consider adding a supplement, like uni carbonara or toro donburi. This laidback spot is also ideal for casual-yet-kind-of-fancy date nights (jeans are totally acceptable here), or dinners before hitting the nearby bars.
