Elevage? I haven't noticed it but seems nice from the reviews. 

 

 

what is the sushi sho school? 

 

Mixed service of nigiri and tsumami, red and white rice, aging (once revolutionary but now seemingly modest at 1-3 weeks) of a relatively wide range of fish, focus on sake, much longer base omakase than at Ginza shops. Also they use some shellfish not from Japan occasionally, which of course is a big deal. There are seven of them in Tokyo now (Sushi Sho, Takumi Shingo, Sushi Sho Masa, Sushi Sho Saito, Sushi Sho Murase, Sushi Sho Tatsuhiro, one more I forget) and a bunch more around Japan, with Sushi Sho serving as the school. Recently Nakamura-san, the founder, opened a shop in Hawaii and then announced his retirement (much like the Emperor announcing his plans to abdicate, this was a very long and murky process) which was surprising given he's not very old, but then I saw him recently on some foodie production and noticed he was doing that early Parkinson thing with his hand, so that's probably it.

Seems along the lines of Esperance, which has been on my list forever but never made it so far https://tabelog.com/...30701/13013630/

Omg the food.  I can't even write about it and do it justice.

We also went back to Hatsunezushi. This time there were two other couples, but as we sat near his workstation we could see very clearly what was going on - from every piece of fish a repeat visit and good behavior bought us the best slices, while an obnoxious diner got the worst bits. The bottle of sake we got a pour from was different, and the price was 25% lower even though the menu was very similar. Easy to become a regular in Tokyo these days.


Hatsune is now fully booked for all of 2017... How times have changed.
