The popularity of Soto can be judged by the fact that if you need to make a reservation, you have to call at least three days ahead! The fish arrives everyday from Japan and the chef is quite well known for talking to the semi-dead fish! But you need not worry, he has been named as one of the top chefs by Food & Wine magazine. Temperamental to say the least, you can be thrown out for not asking for the appropriate food item or question. You have a choice from over 30 items on the menu. Few tables, a long bar and great food with pure flavors that tingle your taste buds. Try the sweet aji tataki with ginger shoots, chyu toro tartare with fatty pureed avocado or the karei kara age and broiled lobster tempered with crispy panko and mayo.
