Sushi destination Edo expands to Bayview Village


Published:

Barry Chaim

Toronto’s Edo restaurant has expanded several times since it first opened as a top-notch sushi destination in the '80s, and now owner Barry Chaim is taking on Bayview Village. A new location of Edo is set to open at the shopping centre by late spring of this year, taking over Kabuki’s space.

Chaim tells us that the restaurant will serve all of the standards that Edo is known for, plus some new choices, but he wouldn’t get into specifics.

“You have to have some surprises,” he says.

Executive chef Ryo Ozawa, who recently won a gold medal at the World Culinary Olympics in Germany, will oversee the food (Chaim describes his cooking style as Nihonçoise — a blend of Japanese and European techniques).

As the new Edo prepares to open, Chaim is also upgrading Forest Hill’s Edo-Ko. The restaurant will be relocating just down the street into Sotto in the Village’s old spot. That move should be completed by the beginning of February.
