The Japanese word kyozon translates as "a merger of opposites." Apt, perhaps, somehow, when you consider the repellent effect restaurants run by Tom Nacos have had on critics of late (of note, a total pan of Decca 77 by Lesley Chesterman a few weeks ago).
Now the man behind the likes of Newtown, Decca 77, Wienstein & Gavino's and L'Atelier d'Argentine is at work on Kyozon at Crescent and Sainte-Catherine.
To the spiel from Tracey Brooke Public Relations:
The unconventional day-to-night bar and kitchen is set to open its doors to the people of Montreal early August. Situated in a historic landmark building of Downtown Montreal, KYOZON is a young, vibrant and affordable destination blending a great bar with tasty New-Asian cuisine and a mezzanine kaiten belt - all in a quirky design.
