Cuisine Japanese

$50 to $75

Culinary dominance, unmistakable skill, and absolute discipline permeate every angle of this modest storefront. This is not some flashy temple to sushi, but rather an authentic and visually restrained rendering of a traditional Japanese restaurant. If the sterile look (with just blonde wood and bright lights to embellish) seems too antiseptic, then remember that Soto prides itself on precise preparations of luxurious raw seafood. While operational issues combined with lackluster service may have impacted guests' experiences of late, the cuisine of Chef Sotohiro Kosugi remains extraordinary-as long as you can tune out the flaws. Knife skills are paramount and every element is at its precise temperature, as these adept cooks coax each morsel of impossibly rich uni, served simply with uni powder, into a single bite that leaves a lasting impression. Composed dishes are not only strikingly beautiful, but an outright hit-imagine finely chopped and exceedingly silken toro tartare with avocado coulis, caviar, and chives accompanied by a sesame-ponzu sauce. And, unctuous fresh water eel combined with Tosa vinegar, smoky bonito flakes, and crisp Japanese cucumbers come together to form a neat but umami-rich finish.

      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.
