Mochizuki is one of Toronto’s premier Japanese fine dining experiences. Established in 2003, Executive Chef Alan had a vision that would merge authentic Japanese cuisine with contemporary flare. With almost 20 years of executive chef experience, Alan has headed restaurants throughout Asia and North America. The first restaurant with a rotating sushi bar and Japanese fine dining experience in Toronto, Mochizuki has been a staple for both Japanese tourists and neighborhood regulars – serving those from the most acute of tastes to those new to Japanese dining.
The menu spans both kitchen and sushi bar items, with an extensive sushi and sashimi offering, fresh seafood imported from Japan daily, and a plethora of fresh, local ingredients.
Mochizuki is known for a variety of specialties, including:
• Crispy shrimp tempura – traditional with a twist
• Chawan Mushi – a Japanese styled egg custard with assorted seafood and vegetables
• Beef Tataki – high quality steak grilled slightly both sides, sliced thin, and served over ice
• Tai Yaki Maki – a hot sushi roll wrapped with snapper and avocado, and grilled with a
delectable house dressing
• Chef’s Choice of Sushi and Sashimi – Mochizuki is famous for the chef’s sushi and
sashimi plates, where the chef prepares a special dish of sushi or sashimi using fresh catches of the day
Mochizuki is situated in a fine dining enclave within the heart of downtown Toronto, on the
northeast corner of Bay Street and Elm Street, just 5 minutes from the Toronto Eaton Centre.
