Torys Yakitorri on 52nd st
Looking for this new Yakitori Restaurant that opened on east 52nd.. I think the name is torys.. I heard the manager from Yakitorri Totto is working there. I need a phone number?
re: squid kun
Tori-Gen closed and is now a different business. I've been seeing ads for it in Japion for a couple weeks, so I was saddened by the demise of Tori-Gen. It is called Japanese Grille TORYS (same phone # as before). I'll have to see what TORYS is all about. I think with the opening of the second Riki operation where Tatany52 used to be, and with TORYS, 52nd should have a little more happening vibe once again. We'll see.
yes that is the place.. Thanks for the number.. Even when I spoke to them, they spelled there name torys. Too bad that dont have room for me on Friday
Torys is the same deal as:
251 W 55th St (Cross Street: Between Broadway and 8th Avenue)
New York, NY 10019
They are the same people that run it. Once I walked in it felt like the familar joint on the west side. I didn't eat there but they told me that they open till 11pm on weekends.
Yes, Torys is the new yakitori place after Tori-gen closed. I never made it to Torigen but
just went to Torys the other night. My friend and I went on a Saturday night, and without reservation our wait was about 20 minutes, which is not that bad.
The interior is like a mix of Totto and Aburiya. The menu is pretty much the same (of course, the main thing they serve is chicken). It looked like there were more Okinawan inspired side dishes on the menu than at Totto. But the food, service were both what you expect from Totto, and very nice. Since the place is new, and only been advertised in Japanese papers, on teh night we went, my friend was the only non-Japanese person in the whole restaurant, but I'm sure the words are spreading quickly....
For those who live on the east side, this is a great alternative to Totto.
i've been there about 3 times and the quality is the same as totto... however the service is extreeeemely slow. so make sure you order lots of skewers to keep the food coming.
