This October, we will be celebrating our 3-year anniversary in Toronto.
This year is extra special to us because it marks the 10th year of our Aburi brand being in Canada. Our first location in downtown Vancouver opened in 2008, when owner Seigo Nakamura introduced Aburi (flame seared) sushi to Canada. We’re proud to see that Aburi sushi has become so popular across Canada!
To celebrate this special milestone, our chefs have created an exclusive 5 course Anniversary Kaiseki menu featuring a selection of dishes that highlight our Aburi cuisine and contemporary culinary style. Pair with our featured sake pairing to complete your meal.
Thank you to all our guests, we sincerely appreciate your enthusiasm and support. We can’t wait to continue sharing Aburi with you!
Here’s a photo preview of our Anniversary Menu:

Our special beverage feature to celebrate all moms! Head Bartender Nick Meyer discusses his inspiration for this refreshing cocktail:
“Lucile was named after my Grandmother; she always had a huge rhubarb garden when I was growing up so it was a summer staple in my house. The pisco is a perfect base with its subtle floral notes and candied citrus. Matched with fragrant lemongrass tea, homemade rhubarb syrup, and lavender bitters, this cocktail is light, fresh, and floral.”
Available during dinner only.
