Last Friday, we peeked inside trendy midtown sushi joint Koi. On his blog, Yusheng Liao goes us one better, documenting an entire meal at the restaurant in exacting photographic detail. (Above, "Soft Shell Crab ($14) with spicy cream and ponzu sauce.") Celebrity spotting aside, the takeaway is mediocre:
The style here is very obviously Nobu-inspired. I don't know about you, but lately I find myself getting really tired of the whole Japanese-fusion taste. I mean they taste good and everything, but they no longer excite my senses like they used to. The thrill is gone, so to speak.... but the 144 digital photographs remain.
