Toronto, ON M5J 2S3
Since opening in 2016, Miku has become the prime date night spot south of Queen Street. And beyond slim pickings in the area around Queen's Quay, it's no wonder why: Its main innovation, the aburi sushi, is a lightly torched morsels of fresh, creamy, and visually stunning slice of the season's freshest catch on a bed of rice, seen nowhere else in this city. The vibe itself entices: Its 7,000 square feet feel at once sleek and airy yet intimate, with big banquets and plenty of sunlight flooding in from its enormous wall-to-wall windows. Consistently delicious, Miku has quickly turned into an indispensable Toronto mainstay.
