Monday night sushi

Hi Toronto hounds! I'm coming in for a business trip and have Monday night free. I LOVE sushi and read all about Kaji and Zen. Unfortuantely, neither place is open on Monday night and it's my only open dinner! Is there any other sushi place that's chow worthy and also open on Monday night? I hope so!

  1. You might want to try one of these:
    Japango on Elizabeth,
    JaBistro on Richmond,
    Yuzu No Hana on Aledlaide,

    For what it's worth I like them all -- I do find JaBistro a bit thin on the value for your money. But, they do the a more modern take on sushi than the other two.

    1. if you're uptown (scarborough) you might consider...

      le cafe michi

      not sure how they stack up against the downtown options...but they're both a notch above your cheap and cheerful sushi place.

        Aoyoma might be open Mondays, but le Cafe Michi is closed Mondays. I've had good experiences at Inatei in Richmond Hill.

      2. One of the reasons great sushi restaurants aren't open Mondays is because typically fresh fish arrives Fridays and Tuesdays. I make it a rule to never eat or buy fish on Mondays.

          Did you get that tidbit from kitchen confidential? Its bs.

            Even Anthony Bourdain, in his latest book "Medium Raw", stated that what he said in Kitchen Confidential was BS

        2. If you're uptown, Sushi Moto is a solid choice

          1. Thanks for these great recs! I'm not sure where I'm staying yet, but once I figure that out I'll pick a place.
