Dohyo - CLOSED
New York, NY 10036
Village Voice's Description
Dohyo (pronounced "Doe-yo") is the sumo-themed restaurant in the wacky, futuristic Yotel hotel. Chef Richard Sandoval has created a vast range of small dishes--rather expensive for the price--that tweak Japanese standards with Latin and Southeast Asian flavors, often to good effect. A case in point is the soy-lacquered black cod, which comes with a pair of pickled artichokes. Other things we liked included a pile of Thai-flavored roast cauliflower, a pair of halibut sliders moistened with remoulade, and a sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Dishes we didn't like included a pallid miso soup absurdly modified with pozole (a/k/a Mexican hominy). Luckily, the wrestling theme is barely apparent, and you may want to wander out onto the terrace at some point to admire the city view.
Tips from foursquare
We love the spicy cucumber margarita. It's hot, tangy and very refreshing.
