TO Ceviche Bar

TO Ceviche Bar is Toronto's new Peruvian pop-up

The TO Ceviche Bar aims to bring a bit of Peru to Toronto, if only in the form of the country's famous lime-marinated dish. Earlier this year, Sean Lacey, along with friend Arlevo Valencia, launched the semi-regular pop-up and plan to host events on a monthly basis through the end of next summer. Based on customer feedback and attendance, they'll decide whether to move forward with a stand-alone restaurant once their pop-up run is over.

So far they've held one pop-up but plans for the next one are already confirmed for early next month. On offer at the second tasting menu will be tilapia ceviche ($14), clam and mussel chupe (akin to clam chowder, $9), an array of side dishes, and--pending a liquor license--Pisco sours ($12). Personally, I'm not sure tilapia is the type of fish I'd want to have as ceviche (see the sushi fiasco for reference) but I suppose it's all part of learning what the audience wants.

TO Ceviche Bar's next pop-up will take place at Voulez-Vous Cafe on December 8th, with 3 seatings (6:30pm, 7:45pm or 8:30pm) on offer at this cash-only dinner. Call 647.719.3499 or e-mail (TOCevicheBar@gmail.com) for reservations.
