Koi SoHo does not offer printed wine pairings with food served on the menu, but if you need recommendations for what to drink with your selected dishes, simply ask your server or the bartender. Both are more than happy to make suggestions from the extensive bar menu, which features a range of excellent still and sparkling wines from all over the world, available by the bottle or the glass. Bar manager Christopher Choquet, who also assists with wine pairings, says that the Craggy Range Sauvignon Blanc — a bright and fresh white wine with notes of citrus and passion fruit — pairs well with many dishes on the Koi menu. Red wine drinkers often choose the Josh Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, a supple red wine with soft tannins and flavors of spicy berries and tangy black currants. And since Koi specializes in Japanese cuisine and Asian fusion dishes, the New York restaurant offers a range of sakes, including its house Koi Sake.
