I have been wanting to try Chef Suken’s place for quite a while but my wife doesn’t like sushi/most seafood. I was curious what the price range would be for a meal there so I can try to hook a friend into going.

My wife and I were there this past Friday. Your description of your experience matched ours very well. It was an incredible experience, from the food to the atmosphere to Suken’s incredible hosting.

I was curious how often he changes the menu. Your meal looks nearly identical to ours, so he obviously doesn’t change it more than once every few months. That’s ok, though because I don’t think I can afford to go more often than that.

@midwest_kitchen – my wife was hesitant as well as she does not enjoy seafood. But she left full, satisfied, and wanting to go back! When I made the reservation, I indicated my wife’s hesitation to raw fish and Suken made an alternate sashimi dish for her and encouraged her to try mine, which she did. The seafood is so excellently prepared that it is impossible not to enjoy, even for those who do not like seafood.

The price came to $138 for two of us before tip. It’s also BYOB. Suken will cork and serve your wine or sake for you.

It’s an amazing experience and I’m sure your wife will LOVE it!

I’m glad you enjoyed Cafe Beautiful as much as we did. I don’t think the chef changes the menu except as necessary to make sure the fish and vegetables he serves are the freshest available. But, as you said, it’s not the kind of place you’d go to often, so it doesn’t really matter.
