In December, Good Food revealed Toko restaurant's 15-year run on Crown Street, Surry Hills, was about to come to an end, with the crew from Franca Brasserie opening a Parisian brasserie at the site later this year.
Toko owner Matt Yazbek was tight-lipped about the restaurant's future, with reports he'd been negotiating on a new home for Toko. That deal is across the line, with a spokeswoman for the restaurant confirming a deal has been inked for the lower ground floor at 275 George Street, in Sydney's CBD. It will open later this year.
Toko's final service in Surry Hills is April 2. When it reopens in the city mid-year, an "anthology" menu will be part of the offering.
Franca owner Andrew Beecher gets the keys to Crown Street in May. "Steel and Stitch will do the design," he told Good Food. "It'll be a Parisian brasserie, but not kitsch. It'll be super luxe, super high-end, in my style."
