Kai Zan is a BYOB sushi spot that’s been around since 2012, and it has one of the best, most affordable omakase options in the city. For $65 you get 10 courses of delicious sushi and Japanese small plates, including dishes like scallop shooters that you probably won’t see on other menus. If you’re someone who prefers controlling their own destiny, you can order from a separate a la carte menu of sashimi and nigiri instead.
