Cuisine Japanese

Between $50 and $75

Culinary dominance, unmistakable skill, and absolute discipline permeate every angle of this modest storefront. This is not some flashy temple to sushi, but an authentic and visually restrained rendering of a traditional Japanese restaurant. If the sterile look (with little more than blonde wood and bright lighting to embellish) seems too antiseptic, then remember that this is a place that prides itself on precise preparations of raw seafood. Does the staff fear their stern, formidable Chef Sotohiro Kosugi? Maybe. Knife skills are paramount and every element is at its precise temperature, as these adept cooks coax each morsel of fish into a single bite that vies to be remembered as New York's best sushi. Composed dishes are not only strikingly beautiful, but may prove to be your favorite of the night—finely minced and impossibly rich bigeye tuna with avocado coulis, caviar, minced chives, threads of fried daikon, and nori with a sesame-ponzu sauce. The unctuous uni cocktail combines soy reduction and fresh wasabi with icy-cold sea urchin. Elegant plates have included ebi tartare, showcasing the fresh flavors of sweet, raw shrimp with ginger, caviar, nori, and shiitake dashi.

      Pros

      We visited almost all the 'hit-list' restaurants in NYC during our last visit, and Soto was for us miles ahead any of them. THE FOOD and THE TASTE, is what we are talking about: not the decor, or wines, or wine/sake pairing, or service. If these are the things that are more important for you in a restaurant, go to Per Se or Jean Georges etc. If you want to be smashed away by the intensity and purity of tastes, quality of products-this is your restaurant. That was what we had expected of Masa, and we found it here-for one-fourth of the price.
