You’ll need to plan ahead if you want to eat at Soseki, an omakase spot where the 10 seats often fill up two weeks out. But it’s absolutely worth it for an unforgettable night fueled by 18 or so incredible bites. The atmosphere is pretty laid-back and personal, as chefs share the story behind each item prepared at the bar in front of you. It might be chawanmushi, where the egg custard gets a Florida twist with Cape Canaveral shrimp, or perhaps the soup version of caesar salad, made with pureed lettuce, anchovy essence, parmesan foam, and garlic bread crumbs. You'll probably get to try their edo-style nigiri, but the menu is always changing, and that's part of the fun.
