Kyo is the newest and perhaps boldest offering to come out of the Antonopoulos Group’s restaurant making machine. With hot spots like Auberge du Vieux-Port, Verses, Mechant Boeuf, Taverne Gaspar, Bevo and a handful of others under their belt, creating a restaurant concept, setting it up and running it successfully is something that the Antonopoulos Group can do seemingly blindfolded. It is worthy to note that Kyo is their first venture in serving up ethnic food.
Last time I went to New York with my family, we went to EN Brasserie. This is the same trip where we went to the legendary Cocoron – check out that experience here. Talk about amazing Japanese restaurants, right? We loved EN so much that we made it a point to go back on our most recent trip. Located on Hudson street, this place is like the shining light of the surrounding blocks, giving off this mysterious and intriguing “come to me” vibe. Don’t ask questions. Just go. But make sure to make reservations here because it won’t be easy to stroll in and expect a table.
Conveniently located in the Montreal core, Kazu montreal is a small Japanese eatery with a flair for the authentic. Wait lines are not uncommon – eager foodies show up a half an hour early to secure a spot. After reading so many good reviews about the place, I decided to check it out last week for the first time with a friend. We arrived at 5:15 and managed to get in on the first seating, but just barely. I would suggest lining up between 5:00 – 5:10 if you want to get in for the early dinner set. After the first seating, you can expect to wait around 45 minutes to get in. Also, the prices are very reasonable – the most expensive item on the menu is $15!
