Toro Sashimi

Attention Toro Lovers

There’s a new item on our menu: Toro sashimi!  Our Toro sashimi is sustainably ranched bluefin served simply with a sprinkling of cucumber. When lightly dipped in soy, the result is a rich, melt-in-your-mouth experience that we think our guests will love. At this time, the new menu item is available only for our outdoor dining guests at both SUGARFISH and KazuNori.
