Omen, the unusual Japanese haunt in SoHo, is the paragon of Kyoto-style country cooking. That means you’ll be exposed to such wonders as the Uni Yamakake (raw tuna and sea urchin with grated japanese yam, wasabi & raw quail egg). Feeling intimidated by the menu but still want to venture outside your comfort zone? Opt for one the four tasting menus, made of six different small dishes including two appetizers, an entrée and one of the daily desserts – green tea ice cream with azuki red bean sauce and mochi rice balls will give you an idea of your happily-ever-after. Who should you bring to Omen? Anyone with tastebuds, especially adventurous ones and anyone who needs a little luck or a good sign: the future always looks bright after a meal here.
