The cool, upscale spot offers a space suited for a work lunch or bite with friends, with a menu that opts for quality over quantity. Lunch options include freshwater eel (unagidon) or seasoned sushi rice topped with ingredients such as raw fish, omelets, and nori. Both come with udon noodles.

The menu is expansive, with tons of sashimi and specialty roll options you’ve never had before like the 10-piece Sesame Bomb roll, which has a unique mix of crabmeat, shrimp, cucumber, black tobiko and avocado. Sweeten your visit with a scoop of ice cream with flavour options that include green tea, black sesame, mango or strawberry mocha.

While the wine and beer list is small (only select red and whites and Sapporo or Asahi bottles on hand), the sake menu stands out. With a variety of unique flavour combinations varying in sweetness, there is something to suit everyone’s taste. Try the Izumi Sake Politan, a boldly tart cranberry lime flavour or the Momo Sake, which is a Japanese Peach flavour.

Swing by the 16 Park Home Avenue spot every day for Project: Fish’s unique sushi experience and, while you’re at it, sit on their newly opened patio when the weather is nice.
