Miku, the Vancouver sushi hotspot, is coming to the “south core” in 2015
Toronto’s flourishing southern financial district will soon be able to add upscale sushi to its long list of attractions. (Others: green roofs, bike paths, lake views.) According to a recent press release, Miku, the popular west coast eatery, will make its debut sometime next summer in the new RBC building at the foot of Bay Street, just a couple blocks from the waterfront. Miku is well known in British Columbia for its sophisticated salads and “aburi-style” sushi rolls. (The technique, which involves searing pieces of fish with a blowtorch, isn’t totally new to Toronto—it’s the signature move of JaBistro chef Koji Tashiro, who worked at Miku in Vancouver before opening shop in Toronto.) This is one of the first big restaurant announcements for the city’s south core, but it certainly won’t be the last.
