Sushi lunch in BOCOCA

a
abby11201 May 15, 2008 04:15 PM

I've enjoyed Ki and Hibiro and have heard good things about the new place on Henry called Koto Steak and Sushi. What do people think of this place compared to the others?

    Haven't been to Koto, but for sushi in the BOCOCA general area I think Taro is hands down the best. I've never been for a weekday lunch but IIRC they have some good lunch specials.

      Taro is in Park Slope, may be out of range depending on time constraings. There's other places worth trying to mix it up a bit...Kyoto, Cube 63, Osaka, and Shinjuku. I haven't tried Koto before. Shinjuku has a really good lunch deal, I believe it's 3 rolls plus soup and salad for $10.

      I tried Koto for lunch today. The seaweed salad was very good. My friend had the sushi lunch special and asked for a tuna roll to be substituted for the california roll which they did with no problem. I had the maki combo which was very tasty. The service was very good with lots of tea refills. The only negative was the bad radio station they were playing. I will definitely return. By the way, it's BYOB.

          Amazing fish. Stick with the specials and what the chef is recommending, and you'll be very happy here. It's easily the best in the neighborhood, and is as good or better than the best I've had in Manhattan.

              It's only been open maybe half a year ... It's on the corner of Carroll:

              For what it's worth, I had dinner at Hibino (other side of Henry) for the first time last week and was blown away. Haven't tried Koto, but am in love with Hibino!

                Thanks for the link.

                I also love Hibino. One of my favorites.

                I think Hibino is the best in the neighborhood, but Kyoto on Smith is reliable and has great service...
