This is the place I have been waiting for. I heard about Jinsei Motto’s omakase on Instagram (@chitownsushi) and it looked amazing so I had to check it out.
Jinsei Motto is located inside CH Distillery. The vibe inside is super sleek, but fun, lively, and still laid back. You can order cocktails or drinks from the distillery, or you can do a tasting that’s paired with the omakase. We did the pairing and loved it. You get generous pours, and they really mix up the flavors in a fun way that still compliments each bite. The owner, Tony, also stopped by several times just to chat and voluntarily top off our drinks and that was amazing. Very personal and genuine service.
Now the omakase. OMG. It is so so so good. It is without a question up there with Kyōten and Sushi Suite, but less $$$ than Kyōten and slightly less than Sushi Suite. While we did not get to meet the chef, his partner who was super knowledgeable about omakase (and super friendly) brought each piece out and made it a very personalized experience - one we did not get at places like Mako, etc. So in addition to the flavors and quality, the service takes this place a step above the rest IMO. They also personalized our menus with the names on our reservation, so that was another special touch.
At the end of the omakase service, they also offer you an a la carte menu so you can order more of the pieces you loved. That was a cool option to have.
Overall I can’t wait to go back. Check it out!
