Guu opening its third izakaya at Yonge and Sheppard

Guu is expanding again, with a new location set to open this spring at Yonge and Sheppard. In the time that's intervened since Guu Sakabar opened in the Annex back in 2011, the owners of the franchise have been busy opening other restaurants around Toronto (like Kinton Ramen, JaBistro, and Kintori Yakitori), so this represents something of return to the Kinka family's roots.

According to Post City, the space promises to be big with 150 seats split between the restaurant and the patio. No stranger to North York, Guu's owners have already entered the market with a Kinton Ramen location in late 2014. Yonge and Sheppard is condo central, so I wouldn't be surprised if this location was even busier than the downtown outposts. In any case, get ready for plenty of okonomiyaki, kimchi udon and karange, North Yorkers.
