We are so delighted to have the opportunity finally to visit CHOTTO MATTE! Let’s say it together once, “chot-toe mat-tay”, The Japanese phrase translates to “Please wait a moment”, and this proved exactly well worth the wait. Situated at Bay x Wellington at Toronto’s Brookfield Place (161 Bay St), the brainchild of founder Kurt Zdesar is so much more than just a restaurant. It is a sensual feast bursting with colour, energetic music, fabulous Nikkei (Japanese-Peruvian) cuisine and inspired cocktails. Its space is open, full of height, an experience heightened further by friendly staff who are happy to offer informed recommendations. We definitely won’t forget this.
The Dinner Menu offers Sharing Options at fixed prices, or A La Carte, divided by Sashimi Dishes, Tempura, Robata Grill, Sides, Sushi and A Little Something (Appetizers).
Some of the exciting things I got to try on their Menu:

Definitely somewhere to celebrate a milestone if you want to make it memorable. Chotto Matte possesses both a a festive electricity, but also a quiet intimacy to it that gives it versatility. And don’t forget, they have a patio as well!
