The name of this Japanese restaurant is a mouthful, but don't let it intimidate you into choosing a restaurant with an easier name to tell your taxi driver. Named in part for the kind of cuisine it serves (Japanese) and in part for the street on which it's located (Temístocles), Tori Tori Temístocles is known not only for its delicious sashimi and sushi, but also for its architectural design, which is unusual for Mexico, and stunning inside and out.
Tori Tori is a higher-end but not unaffordable Japanese food restaurant in Mexico City. The chain maintains three locations: one in the Condesa neighborhood and two in Polanco. The most recent of the three features a visually striking space hidden behind a simple black door. The restaurant was designed by architect Michel Rojkind, with interiors by Héctor Esrawe.
