SOTO Sake at Hoseki

SOTO Sake Now Featured at New York’s Premier Secret Omakase Restaurant

Experience the perfect blend of shopping and sushi at the world-renowned Saks Fifth Avenue flagship store in New York. SOTO Sake proudly features two of its expressions on the menu of Hoseki, the exclusive omakase restaurant recently highlighted by Forbes Magazine.

Hoseki: A Hidden Gem in Saks Fifth Avenue

Located on the subterranean fine jewelry floor, Hoseki—meaning “jewel” in Japanese—offers an intimate dining experience away from the bustling main floors. This six-seat oasis is nestled among sparkling jewelry displays, creating a serene atmosphere for discerning diners.

Culinary Excellence by Chef Daniel Kim

Hoseki is the vision of Maxwell Weiss, in partnership with celebrated chef Daniel Kim. Together, they founded Ten Homakase, an innovative in-home omakase service known for its pop-ups across New York City and Long Island. With nearly two decades of culinary expertise, Chef Daniel Kim has honed his skills at prestigious sushi establishments like Sushi Zo and Sushi by Bou, and has served as the private sushi chef for the Japanese investment bank, Nomura.

Indulge in a Unique Omakase Experience

Gracefully wielding the knife and elegantly molding the rice while confabbing with guests is sushi shokunin Morgan Adamson: blond, aged 30, full of Midwestern charm and enthusiasm and shattering all the macho stereotypes about the profession.

Adamson won’t serve you technicolor American maki rolls, however, or sashimi with gimmicky sauces and toppings. Her 12-course omakase features elegant nigiri pieces starring fish like madai (sea bream) accented with truffle salt, luxurious shima aji (striped jack) highlighted with housemade soy sauce, silky bluefin tuna from Spain, and plush Hokkaido scallops flourished with finger lime “caviar.”
