Mid­town mas­ter opens standup sushi spot

Midtown Post - - Food -

If you’re one minute early to Tachi, the host­ess will point to the LCD clock, show­ing the time in red, and very po­litely ask you to re­turn at the ex­act time of your reser­va­tion. This at­ten­tion to de­tail ex­tends all the way through the omakase sushi meal. Found at Assem­bly Chef’s Hall (111 Rich­mond St. W.), Tachi is Canada’s first and only standup omakase restau­rant, brought to us by two co–exec chefs from Shoushin: Tsuyoshi Yoshi­naga and, of course, Jackie Lin. This food ad­ven­ture sees a max­i­mum of eight stand­ing pa­trons be­ing fed 11 ni­giri and one hand roll apiece over the course of 30 min­utes. No more, no less. Re­cently the chefs have in­cluded Bos­ton uni (sea urchin) and Ja­panese yel­low­tail and ho­tate (scal­lop) in a meal that will trans­port you to Tokyo.

THE RICE STUFF Tachi, Canada’s first standup sushi spot, has space for eight din­ers.
