Soto's Sushi Bar

357 6th Ave (& Washington Pl)
West Village

For the boyfriend's birthday, I took him to dinner at Soto. While this is already my favorite Japanese restaurant (but not necessarily my favorite sushi restaurant... that would be Sasabune), I had not ordered exclusively from their sushi selection before. I planned to order omakase style (chef's choice), but they only accommodate for 3 restrictions, so I did not qualify & had to order off the menu. It is not the service or the carefully calculated pairing of dishes that you receive at Sasabune, but the meal was delicious nonetheless & the sake was excellent.

  1. oh yummm... majorly craving sushi now.

  2. omigosh everything looks so gooood! and it looks like they use sauces on their sushi, too, which i love because i am not keen at all on fish types and quality. i just like it when it melts in my mouth!

    this totally looks like sushi that i'd eat, lots of tuna and salmon, and a yummy roll... sounds yum! the Isaki, Hirame, and Mirugai look YUM!

  3. wow, everything looks sooooo yummy. i'm jealous.
