Dining Guide

Soto

Another sleek and contemporary Austin sushi import with a cult following has opened in Montrose, right down the road from Uchi. Some small plates veer fussy, like the showy Salmon Over Fire with raspberry oil, but the substantial pan-seared, Wagyu-stuffed gyoza with a silky chile vinaigrette was a standout. Also recommended is the crispy sushi rice served with stir-fried vegetables. Fresh sashimi and one-bite nigiri outperformed some of the sushi rolls. Do try the bluefin tuna nigiri with pickled wasabi and chive, or the Ivory King salmon with truffle soy and crispy scallions. For a splurge, consider the 18-course omakase menu, featuring fish flown in from Tokyo’s Toyosu Fish Market.
