Recommendations for Japanese in NY

Visiting from Australia this December and trying to decide on a Japanese option for dinner during our stay.

From reading the boards here it seems that Omakase is the most served style at the better places.
I would be keen to try this style as I have never had it before.

Currently I have a reservation at Soto. After reading their menu and various posts about peoples experiences there it seems a lot of uni was/is used.
To be honest I have only really tried uni once and it wasn't served in the most appetising way, hence I am slightly hesitant about the amount of uni served in the Omakase at Soto.

Masa is defnitely out of my price range everytihng else is do-able.
15 East sounds pretty good,
Brushstroke also sounds like a really nice experience.

As long as its a good mix of hot and cold dishes, the flavours are right and its served in a ince setting I will be happy.

Which one should I go with??

Any advice will be really appreciated!!
