Being in the business of sushi runs in head chef Sotohiro Kosugi’s family, and with such fish-connoisseur pedigree, it makes sense that this is a guy who really understands how to achieve pitch-perfect purity of flavor and presentation. It comes at no surprise, then, that he flies in the finest raw fish from around the world five times a week. It’s also no surprise to find him pacing behind this Zen-like venue’s long blond-wood sushi bar, correcting and perfecting every dish. Design-wise, the stark white surrounds offer little distraction from the inventive sushi.
Sushi connoisseurs and devoted locals.
WHAT WE WOULD WEAR
Stylishly casual; run with the chic Greenwich Village crowd and wear a classy top, dark pants, and fancy flats.
GO HERE WITH
A friend; a sushi fanatic; significant other; a date; yourself
WHY WE LIKE IT
The uni! It’s Soto’s raison d'être.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
Omakase falls short of some of the better individual options, which is surprising for such a popular sushi spot.
GOOD TO KNOW
The understated and sign-less exterior is tricky to spot. The seats at the sushi counter, where you can watch the masters at work, are the best in the house.
