Many top-end restaurants in the City have prohobitive Dinner prices while serving up a surprisingly affordable weekday Lunch menu. Aoki's lunch sets start at $30, so if you're in the mood for some quality Japanese (primarily sushi) but don't want to break the monthly food budget, their lunch is definitely a steal.
We tried the Nigiri Sushi Tokusen ($50) which comes with chawanmushi, 8 nigiri, one maki and tamagoyaki and the Mazechirashi ($35). Both orders come with dessert included.
Sushi is good, although you get it all on one platter instead of getting it served one by one. The star of the afternoon is definitely the chirashi though, which is about 2 parts assorted fish, salmon roe, creamy uni and egg to 1 part rice. Would definitely come back multiple times for this.
Considering that you could easily eat up a bill much higher at other subpar chains like Sushi Tei, Aoki's lunch is terrific value and definitely highly recommended.
