Chase Hospitality Group Unveils Contemporary Japanese-Inspired Restaurant

Kasa Moto to Launch Spring 2015 in the heart of Yorkville

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 5, 2015) - Chase Hospitality Group is pleased to announce the Spring 2015 opening of its new restaurant and lounge in the heart of Yorkville. Kasa Moto, a two-story restaurant offering contemporary Japanese cuisine, will be located at 115 Yorkville Ave, occupying the building previously home to Remy's.

The interiors will be entirely reinvented by award-winning firm II BY IV DESIGN. With a clean, contemporary aesthetic, the design will incorporate Japanese-inspired elements, such as imported tiles and dramatic lighting, a minimalist colour palette, and warm natural finishes such as walnut and oak. Among its standout features are a sprawling rooftop terrace, wood ceilings, and lush indoor topiary.

Guests of Kasa Moto will enjoy a versatile dining experience that evolves from day to night, with multiple environments and culinary offerings. The vibrant menu will be overseen by Chefs Tsuyoshi Yoshinaga and Daisuke Izutsu, and will feature contemporary Japanese flavours and beautifully arranged presentations. Steven Salm, President of Chase Hospitality Group, says, "We are thrilled to announce Kasa Moto as our fifth restaurant. The space is beautiful and we can't wait to share our vision with the city as it comes to life." To develop the concept, Salm and Michael Kimel of Chase Hospitality Group partnered with Mark Silver and Adam Arviv, two prominent Toronto businessmen.

With Kasa Moto extending through the main floor and rooftop terrace, the second floor interior will be home to Bar Moto, an exclusive event space and private dining area. The main floor restaurant will seat 150, the rooftop 180, and Bar Moto 60.

The team behind The Chase, The Chase Fish & Oyster, Colette Grand Café, and Little Fin, Chase Hospitality Group is renowned for its refined cuisine, unparalleled hospitality and warm environments.
