One of the best restaurants I've been to in NYC, is the West Village Japanese restaurant Soto. I went last month with some friends and had my mind blown. Every dish was pitch perfect and eloquent. Sublime. For all you sea urchin fans, they have a sea urchin martini at Soto that is out of this world! Order it. Every dish as Soto had my jaw dropping. I highly recommend this place. Check it out for yourself, you can thank me later. Culinary magic awaits.
