THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Toko V Restaurant Review

: Unlike some other pan-Asian restaurants that dabble in several cuisines and excel in none, this modern, trendy upstairs neighbor to Village Kitchen turns out pleasing dishes that globe-trot all over the continent thanks to the leadership of chef Andre Natera and skilled sushi master Daniel Chau. Start off with a saké selection from the lengthy list or a craft cocktail like the sweet and herbal Sulu with rum, watermelon and rosemary, and a refreshing green papaya salad that gets bright pops of flavor from fresh mint and tiny dried shrimp. From there, move on to lightly seared escolar tataki dressed with a zingy yuzu-garlic sauce or one of many carefully crafted sushi rolls. An orange-ginger beef entrée forgoes the deep-fried, heavily breaded morsels of the Chinese takeout classic in favor of a sous-vide method that leaves the flat-iron steak rosy from edge to edge. Carnivores who aren't afraid of spice will also enjoy the gochujang-glazed ribs, meaty slabs piled high in a complex sauce that gets a jolt of heat from the classic Korean chile sauce. Finish the meal with a light, not-too-sweet dessert like the many-layered crêpe cake, or just order up another round of saké.
