New York, NY 10014
Village Voice's Description
The name is short for Sotohiro Kosugi, a wildly innovative sushi chef who recently moved here from Atlanta. The new Village space is mysterious on the outside, while the inside is small, comfortable, and austere. You can't go wrong with the sushi omikase;12 pieces that form a narrative from the left to right on the long plate. But don't miss his raw fish inventions, either, which often have a pictorial element, including a puck of pureed fatty tuna surmounted by sublime landscape of Japanese guacamole, black caviar, shredded dried ginger, and miniature chopped green chives.
Tips from foursquare
For the best experience, speak the word omakase. Whether you’re doing the full monty or just sushi or sashimi, put yourself in the meticulous chef’s hands. - Inspector
NY. Elegant and fresh downtown sushi spot. Our must-haves Steamed Lobster With Uni Mousse and the sushi omakase.
The understated and sign-less exterior is tricky to spot. Come for the uni though--it’s Soto’s raison d'être. Good to know: The seats at the sushi counter are the best in the house.
Two Michelin stars.
This discreetly hidden and modern Japanese restaurant is quite expensive but you’ll be rewarded with culinary masterpieces…Omakase is the way to go.
