Koto Sushi & Steak getting some love!

So the friends at Brownstoner have played up Koto in Carroll Gardens on quiet Henry Street as Restaurant Of The Day.

When I first ran into Koto, I noticed it was very quiet and I automatically took empathy for a small business on a quiet block. It blended nicely, and I was sure that it had to be at least a neighborhood favorite, either way I was going to make it mine. The food is proportioned a little smaller (which is probably better for my raging appetite) but very tasty and the fish melts a bit in your mouth which is always a great sign of good sushi. The owners are very friendly even if you're just waiting for food and you just feel at ease when in the place.

The funniest thing is it reminds me of Koto Japanese Steakhouse, a different kind of sushi restaurant upstate near the Albany Airport off of 155. It's kind of a power lunch kind of place for suburban businessmen, and much more lavish with a little bridge and pond kind of thing. Oh and hibachi.

yea, rpi department chair was at albany koto near the airport last night, entaining some guests. she always thought the place is a bit pricy. but i thought the food is on the high end side, commensurate with the price. worth it.
