The massive bar and heated patio take centre stage at this steadfastly popular Bay Street hangout. Semi-private alcoves in the back provide some reprieve from the meat market vibe, though the constant clacking of stilettos on slate floors is distracting. Skewers of crisp, pancetta-wrapped eel are a superb spin on surf-and-turf; a fiery ponzu dip cuts through the fatty flesh. For raw fish, it’s hard to beat a terrific ceviche of tuna, salmon, mackerel and shrimp barely cured in miso, sake and lime. Miso-marinated pork tenderloin is pink and juicy, though it has the undeniable gaminess of cheap meat.
