- Attentive service: We were a group of three so most dishes were served by two people; each dish explained; when I spilled soy sauce, server as-discreetly-as-possible wipped it up; tea refilled without needing to ask; good pacing between dishes.
- Beautiful, dish-specific tableware: Each course served in a different type of dish with the appropriate cultery arriving before each course. This is clearly not necessary but it really speaks to how much thought is put into each dish.
- Fresh food that speaks for itself:
ND Sushi Omakase (chef’s choice/tasting menu) – 8 courses – give yourself at least 2.5 hours – ndsushiandgrill.com (for menus and pricing) – 3 Baldwin Street, Toronto
Final Note: There are a lot of great restaurants on Baldwin between McCaul St and Beverley St but ND Sushi is one of the few worth travelling for.
