    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. Read more

    This discreetly hidden and modern Japanese restaurant is quite expensive but you’ll be rewarded with culinary masterpieces…Omakase is the way to go.

    This place from decorations to services feel very authentic. Typical Tokyo style. While the food is fresh and tasty, it is not traditional Japanese cuisine. It has a modern touch.

    Incredible. Particularly the uni cocktail, uni tempura, and the karei karaage. Don't be a fool and come here and order sushi rolls; it's worth it to spend the extra money for their uni delicacies.

    Do not to make your reservation based upon when you want to arrive, but based on when you want to leave as the service at McDonalds allows for more appreciation! Try Jewel Bako instead
