Checking the NY Times archive I see that last fall this place got the esteemed "Excellent" from the NY Times.

Any have some first-hand info about the place? Is it still Bring your own wine? (That's great!)

    I've only been for their lunch special, which is an excellent deal for great (though basic) sushi. I'd do a search, as I'm certain it's been discussed on other threads.

      There's another thread about the place in the old tri-state forum...

      I was there recently and it is still BYOB, unfortunately. It was our second time there and everything we've had has been excellent. The Bibimbop is as good as I get in Korea Town and the sushi is excellent. The space and vibe is great too. As I recall, some people gave it a less than positive review in the old thread, but I disagree.

        BYOB is not so unfortunate in my book. It significantly brings down the price of the meal and you have a great bottle of wine.

          True, but with Asian food I want an Asian beer--preferably Singha--and that can be hard to find at the local grocery.

            True enough!! Try the Katonah Beer Barn. They have a lot of different kinds of beer.

              Sorry to report that the Katonah Beverage Barn appears to have closed.

                  I would prefer to support local merchants where possible, but now that Katonah Beverage Barn is closed, if you seek hard-to-find beers, domestic and offshore, you might try Half Time in Poughkeepsie. I just checked out their web site, which appears to give you a good rundown of what beers they carry, and what it will cost you. I have not been there myself, but a friend who shares an interest in beer thinks it's worth the trek from Northern Westchester for both selection and price. And now that the Katonah store is closed, I think I'll take a ride up there.

                    Try De Cicco's in Ardsley. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/656669

              If you can bring wine, you can bring your own beer as well. And it will be much cheaper for you to buy it in the store rather than in the restaurant.

                Blue Asian Fusion on main street serves alcohol and I think the sushi there is better, i dont remember if they have Singha.

              Neo Bistro - Mt. Kisco
              I had the pleasure of eating at the Neo Bistro last night again
              One word would rate this restaurant " Excellent"
              If you don't enjoy the food at this Asian all I an say is that you don't know good food.
              The Sushi is fresh and would stand up to the best in New York City. The Bibimbap is also good. Everyone at our table enjoyed the food and none of us had a bad meal.
              I will definetly be back. Service was good - No problems
              Give it a try - You won't be disapointed

                I returned again for lunch and it truly is a great deal. 2 extremely fresh rolls plus miso soup is only $8.95. They're not as fancy as the beautiful special rolls we usually get from Yama in Briarcliff, but those are twice the price for a single roll. My sister got an amazing bento lunch box deal. For about $10, she got miso soup, a small salad, a 6 pc veggie roll, spring roll, rice, and chicken katsu over rice. What a bargain!

                The muzak is horrible, though.

                  I personally had a very bad experience. The place was packed, but we were seated right away. The appetizers took over an hour to come out, and one was wrong. Not all of the main courses came out at all, and the missing items were still on the bill. The food that did come out was good, although the bibimbob was flat.

                    The people who publish Clipper Magazine have a new site where they are selling half price vouchers. They have a $40 Neo certificate on sale for $20 through 2/12.

                    Has anyone gone for the all you can eat sushi for $29.95? Not sure I can eat enough to make it worth that price. BTW according otheir website, they now have a liquor license.

                        Glad you found it useful. I've never seen coupons for Neo so this is a good deal. And the voucher is good for a year (or so it says). I've neve been there so I am looking forward to trying it.
