Sono..Great Food..Empty Dining Room

Lisa P | Aug 27, 2001 09:15 PM

Had dinner at Sono last Friday night at 7. Dining room was empty (4 people at ONE other table and us)
While it was a Friday night in the summer, it was still eerily empty. Note: could not get a res at gotham, gramercy and a few other places with notice for summer weekend.

Shrimp with chili pepper oil was delicious as was the sashimi sampler. the sashimi has difft toppings (a la gari) and was great! it was offered as an app but i asked for it as a main and it was perfect.

others have mentioned that it has been empty and other than somewhat high prices (somewhat the norm in NYC), husband and i cant figure why!!

any new comments or thoughts would be great!

bon appetit

p.s. good selection of sakes but skip the house
martinis and cosmos. we each tried one and they were marginal at best.
