A year after the exultant reopening of SOTO JAPANESE RESTAURANT, chef/owner Sotohiro Kosugi recently made another intriguing change to his Japanese fusion format. Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays are dedicated to the classic a la carte format of pristine sushi and wild creations like lobster in a lotus root cage. On Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, the restaurant now serves a multi-, MULTI-course meal of mind-opening dishes (think many small tastes of brilliance). Personally? Wed rather dodge the pandemonium and come for the weekend prix-fixe meals. Sotohiro is certainly more relaxed then.
