Celebrity chef Akira Back opened an eponymous restaurant in Toronto on the second floor of the Bisha Hotel in December. Designed by Studio Munge, the 3,000-square-foot space features artwork from and inspired by the chef’s mother, including the restaurant’s blue-paneled ceiling and entrance way canvas. Situated on the second floor of the hotel, the restaurant has an intimate vibe with an arched ceiling with a dark, rich decor and a gold-painted entryway. The dining room seats 130, including a six-seat sushi bar, or holds 150 for cocktails. A private dining room slated to open in the spring will seat 28 guests. Full buyouts are available.
