The top 10 new restaurant openings in Toronto for January

New restaurants in Toronto have brought us all kinds of exciting new experiences. Try Japanese and Burmese cuisine like you've never had before, or grab some wine or tequila at one of the city's newest snack bars.

Here are the my picks for the top new restaurants that opened in Toronto last month.

This new Japanese restaurant might be Yorkville's fanciest yet, featuring Kyo-Kaiseki cuisine, ceremonial anticipatory service, private dining rooms and traditional floral arrangements.

This Calgary Mexican restaurant opened its first Toronto location where they've replaced beer with tequila in the old Bier Markt space on King West.
