Soto’s Sushi, Straight Outta Atlanta

We dont yet know what Sotos menu has in store (theyre keeping it secret until they open), but its safe to say this is the biggest sushi opening to hit New York in a while or so we gather from Rob and Robins story of how Sotohiro Kosugi built a national reputation from his original restaurant in an Atlanta strip mall. This week he tests the New York market for his inventive, complex food. If you dont have the endurance for Kosugis fifteen-course, $80 tasting menu, ask about his omakase.
