What happens when a pro snowboarder ditches the half-pipe for the kitchen? In this case, chef Back opened a Michelin-starred restaurant in his native Korea. Lucky for us, Back has brought his upscale Japanese-Korean fusion to Toronto. The menu strikes a delicate balance between irreverent (one of the maki features Pop Rocks; another is laced with chipotle) and traditional (the sashimi would impress even a sushi master, and includes delectable sea delicacies such as urchin, flounder, and botan shrimp). Even the cocktail card abides by the Asian-fusion theme. Flavors like yuzu, Thai chili, and green tea are combined with Pacific spirits such as Hibiki Harmony.
