If you want to spend an upsetting amount of money on dinner, omakase at a sushi spot is generally a good bet. The one at Uotora in Crown Heights, however, is only $70. That may still be more than what you want to spend on a weeknight - but for 10 pieces of high-quality fish (plus a hand roll and appetizers), it’s a great deal. You can also order a la carte here (if you don’t sit at the bar), and there are a few different sushi/sashimi plates that are around $40. And, while this place is nicer than your average neighborhood sushi spot, it’s still casual and friendly. They don’t have a liquor license yet (and you can’t BYOB), but just get a drink across the street at King Tai beforehand.
