Tojo's Restaurant in Vancouver moves to a new location


If you're a fan of Tojo's Restaurant in Vancouver, BC, get ready for a new venue. Chef Hidekazu Tojo of Tojo's Restaurant has moved from his current locale at 777 West Broadway and will reopen at 1133 West Broadway.

The new resto, designed by sculptor and architect Colin Kwok of Azurean Architecture, reopens for dinner on Jan. 15, 2007. The design blends spatial zen dynamics, crisp modern forms and an underlying Japanese sensibility in its subtle colours and custom designed chairs.

You'll find real plants, natural wood and stone and no MSG.

The 6,500 sq. ft. restaurant features an open kitchen located behind the sushi bar. The ceiling has 35 acoustic baffles, each one symbolizing a year that Tojo has been in Canada.

The restaurant includes a sake lounge and bar, four private tatami booths, three small private rooms and a large private room seating up to 30 guests (complete with its own rock fireplace and outdoor garden area).

For reservations, call 604.872.8050.
