Best of Toledo 2016 – Food

. February 21, 2017.



Mancy’s Steakhouse
Finalist: Rockwell’s


Kyoto Ka
Since opening his first location in Sylvania in November of 2007, Chef Joe Cho, owner of Kyoto Ka, has kept busy. In 2015 Kyoto Ka opened a second location downtown as a lunch-only restaurant, but hungry patrons quickly encouraged Chef Joe to add dinner service. Boasting fresh fish sliced thin, high-quality ingredients, creative combinations and a pleasing vegetarian selection, Kyoto Ka’s sushi is prepared with finesse, artistry and control. Chef Joe and his two sons, Sung and Jason, also sushi chefs, all work together to create the cuisine Toledoans love.
