Taneda Sushi In Kaiseki only has eight seats, and with two seatings per night (one early in the evening and one during primetime), only 16 people eat every day. While it’s hard to get in here at times, this is such an exceptional meal that you should put in the work to get a reservation - you can book a week ahead if you’re dining solo, but you’ll have to wait a couple of months if you’re going with someone else. Once you get a seat, prepare yourself for an extremely special, intimate omakase involving about two dozen courses. What’s on the menu changes every month, but some of our favorites were a sea salt-marinated flounder nigiri from Tokyo and seared A5 Miyazaki wagyu topped with caviar. There are also a few seasonal hot Japanese dishes like a fried soba maki roll and grilled corn teriyaki. During the entire dining process, the chef will personally walk you through the origin and preparation of each dish. For $110, it’s the best omakase value in town.
