Choga is one of only a few good restaurants among the cluster of mediocre Italian cafes on Bleecker. The atmosphere is intimate and rustic in a funky way, the service and food excellent, and all affordable to boot. The drinks were potent and tasty (try the "Wal-Mei"), the sashimi was gleaming and fresh, and our waiters were disarmingly polite, attentive, and thoroughly charming. The hot sake was great, as were the Spider rolls and seafood udon (very generously sized also) and the presentation was elegant. A fantastic neighborhood place in a not-so-fab neighborhood!
