    Yesterday I was at the Lobster Place in the Chelsea Market and they had Live Sea Urchin.

      Hi. I have not had sea urchin in the shell at Soto, but if you are an uni fan, you owe yourself a dinner at Soto! It is pricey but his use of uni in multiple dishes is sublime.

          Yes - my husband occasionally gets sea urchin from there as well - worth calling ahead though.
