THREE NEW SPOTS THAT JUST MISSED THE CUT
SHUNOKO This St. Clair sushi joint is headed by chef Jun Kim of the now-closed Roncey standby Sushi Nomi. He brings his A-game to the larger space, with fresh maki, nigiri, sashimi and even a poke bowl. 1201St.ClairAve.W. SARA Inspired by a recent trip to Japan, the Food Dudes opened this sister restaurant to Rasa. Sara, which means little plates in Japanese, has an enticing menu of snacks, dumplings and avant-garde desserts. 98PortlandSt. STAMP’S LANE After we lost Hopgoods Foodliner on Roncesvalles, there was a donair-shaped hole in the hearts of Toronto’s diners. Enter Stamp’s Lane, a cosy resto serving up East Coast cuisine like lobster, octopus and plenty of oysters. 371RoncesvallesAve.
