Massive sushi restaurant opening soon in Yorkville

Kasa Moto, a new contemporary Japanese restaurant from the Chase Hospitality Group, is set to open in Yorkville this spring. It will be the fifth restaurant for the group behind upmarket establishments, The Chase, The Chase Fish & Oyster, Little Fin, and Colette.

The multi-storey building that was once home to Remy's (and more recently the flash in the pan that was Montage), is being revamped by award-winning firm II BY IV Design and will feature a dramatically lit, minimal space accented by warm woods and lush indoor topiaries.

The main floor will seat 150, while the 60-seat second floor will be occupied by Bar Moto, a private dining room and event venue. Crowning the dining experience will be a sprawling rooftop terrace with room for 180. You can expect this to be one of the most monied patios in Toronto.

On the food front, the early indication is that the menu from Chefs Tsuyoshi Yoshinaga (Yasu, Kaji) and Daisuke Izutsu (Don Don Izakaya, Kaiseki Sakura) will feature contemporary Japanese flavours and artful presentations. More info will become available as the restaurant nears its opening date.
