Morimoto is a super expensive sushi restaurant in Old City that’s looks kind of like the space station from Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century. It’s a good place to suggest when your client says, “I’m buying,” or your boss asks where she should take the team for a celebratory dinner. But if you decide to come here on your own dime, you should come for lunch, when the omakase is only $65 instead of the usual $125.
