Christopher Choquet is the bar and drinks manager at Koi SoHo, and he acts as the restaurant’s sommelier as well. Choquet holds a management degree from New York University, but his experience in hospitality and fine beverage and food service dates back to his teen-age years. As an adult, he worked for establishments including Asia de Cuba, the Gansevoort Hotel and Bar Basque, where he honed his knowledge of fine international wines, spirits and classic mixology. At Koi SoHo, Choquet suggests sauvignon blanc, especially the Craggy Range from New Zealand, as a complement to many of the Japanese-inspired dishes on the menu. Red wine lovers will find that the Josh Cabernet Sauvignon pairs well with meatier offerings at Koi SoHo. For any questions about the specialty cocktails, wine list and range of premium liqueurs, Choquet is the best person to ask if he’s available.
