Nestled in the heart of Midtown, WANO New York is a vibrant beacon of contemporary Japanese Izakaya culture, bringing a slice of Tokyo's spirited dining scene to the Big Apple.
At WANO, every dish tells a story, crafted with the finesse of traditional techniques and the flair of modern innovation. Our Izakaya is a celebration — of flavors that sing, of company that warms the heart, and of the Izakaya tradition that pulsates through the city's veins.

  • Wano New York x Soto

    $180.00 per person

    Jun 20 - Jun 28, 2024
    Wano is delighted to invite our esteemed guests to a special collaborative evening with SOTO. Indulge in our exquisite sushi omakase, perfectly paired with sake and cocktails provided by SOTO. Join us on Thursday and Friday evenings at 6:00 PM, 7:30 PM, and 9:00 PM throughout the month of June. SOTO’s core Junmai and Junmai Daiginjo are brewed from Gohyakumangoku rice in the mountainous prefecture of Niigata. The copious annual snowfall creates a pristine environment in which to brew. Snow acts as an air purifier creating an atmosphere that has virtually no air pollutants to negatively impact the sake. Once this snow melts, it trickles down, giving incredible, pure soft water to grow high-quality sake rice and to brew delicious sake with.

    Place was empty when we entered at 6:30, so wondering if it wasn’t going to be a good experience, but in fact Wano exceeded expectations with super fresh sushi and hot black bass, like a kasu cod was excellent. Menu a bit limited but an easy res and servers were great.

    We loved this authentic Japanese restaurant. Our server helped us choose apps and meals- and they were delicious! The fish cakes, pickled vegetables, fresh raw fish, young chicken and the salted cod were outstanding. We also found the matcha crème brûlée earthy and unusual for dessert. The server helped us find sake’s that we had never tried. Great sake list! Must try place.

    Modern and elegant atmosphere, good food, good service. Wish they had soba noodles option (in addition to udon) but overall a nice lunch place with varied menu.

    Granted it was Valentine’s Day so set menus are usually overpriced and crappy but this was particularly bad. Mediocre sushi. Mediocre hot pot. Terrible service despite being uncrowded.

    Really amazing selection and different enough to be noticeable but not to seem like they are trying too hard to be different. The food quality is fantastic.
