I followed the link on the Farmer's Market thread below and stumbled upon this recent Toronto Life story. This is stunning news!!! For those of you who don't know, Guu is the name of a 3-chain izakaya restaurant in Vancouver. I've never been to Japan so I can't speak for authenticity but all I can tell you is Guu (with Garlic, the one on Robson, to be specific) is one of my favourite spots to eat. A subterranean bar/resto offering up AMAZING small plates of Japanese food (with Western twists), friendly young chefs and waiters, reasonably priced, long list of chalkboard specials and a very cool vibe. For those of you that have been there, you've no doubt been part of the chorus to try and get them to open a restaurant here. If they can maintain the quality and vibe of the restaurants in Vancouver, we are all in for a serious treat.

Here are links to the Toronto Life article and part of the menu for Guu with Garlic to give you a "flavour" of what's in store. The article says they're scouting midtown locations and hoping to open by the end of this year - woo-hoo!!!
