Blowfish Restaurant & Sake Bar
Located in the super-trendy King West neighborhood, Blowfish occupies a former red brick Bank of Toronto building (which explains the high ceilings). The long, narrow space's minimalist design incorporates cool, red and blue LEDs, and limited seating is available at the sleek bar. Blowfish's menu fuses traditional Japanese fare with classical French and pan-Asian touches. In additional to sushi and sashimi, you’ll find barbequed salmon, sea bass or black cod, and free bowls of edamame. The restaurant transforms into a lively lounge around 11 p.m., when the Toronto bar crowd lingers more for the DJ tunes and saketinis than the food.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
