Some restaurants use pretty décor as a smokescreen for mediocre fare. Not so at Kasa Moto. The newest venture from the Chase Hospitality Group, this restaurant and lounge in Yorkville is a win on all counts with high-quality ingredients, innovative dishes, artistic presentation—and a huge rooftop patio with comfortable, sofa-like seating.
Kasa Moto opened this past spring and features classic Japanese dishes with a contemporary twist. One of the menu’s artistic offerings is the Grilled Sea Bass, garnished with seaweed and dusted with a concoction of tabasco powder that gives it a deep and spicy kick. Another popular item is the Rock Shrimp Tempura. Lightly flavoured and sprinkled with yuzu pepper, it’s the perfect pairing to a cocktail.
Soft lighting, subtle lounge music and attentive servers set the tone for a dining experience that’s a delight to all the senses. Though destroying the colourful and immaculate presentation may cause slight pangs of guilt, it’s worth it as the food is every bit as appetizing as it looks. The restaurant uses a mix of ingredients imported from Japan, like authentic wasabi, and fresh meat and fish from right here in Canada.
For a trendy lounge and quality Japanese cuisine that lives up to the ambience, you can’t beat Kasa Moto.
