My old family friend from Tokyo (our auto mechanic since 1984) lives at Pt. Union and Lawrence and I'm going to take him out for dinner when I visit Toronto in the Spring.

I haven't lived in Toronto for so long, I don't know what's out there. I don't want him to have to drive all the way across the city or anything.

Something reasonable that would be acceptable to an actual Japanese guy out here - anyone know? Thanks!

I like this place, but you gotta book ahead. And the place is tiny.

Japanese people run the joint, prices are reasonable. They've been there for 20 years plus.

This is the HR-V of sushi. Japanese food made by someone not Japanese. Probably tastes OK but not authentic.

Great calls on aoyama and cafe Michi. Both solid and top Japanese food in scarb. Can't go wrong with either one. Both require booking ahead of time.

That’s usually what happens when you eat. As long as it comes out solid, you are ok.

If he’s Japanese who’s been living in TO for over 30 years, wouldn’t he know of all the good Japanese restaurants?
I would feel strange if someone from out of the city visits me and take me out for Korean food.

That’s something what HE should be doing, not you.

Hey, don't look at me. I tried to take him out to a pub.

He's an older Japanese guy. All he does is work all the time. He very rarely eats out.

Cool guy though. He used to do pit crew for Aston Martin and Saab racing teams. In Japan.

Thanks for all the suggestions! I won't be in TO until April - lots of time to pick one and book \:\)

I seriously think he spends all of his time either at work or home.
