Toronto’s AGO Bistro has been channeling its inner Yayo Kusama and creating food that replicates her art. The food looks pretty in pictures but it’s one of those things you have to see in person. Taste infinity through the menu – Head to caféAGO for a Japanese-themed Bento box, available each day in limited quantities. Make sure to get there early to ensure they don’t sell out!

“In AGO Bistro, we chose to concentrate on the types of food that Kusama herself would have enjoyed at home or in her studio as she created her masterpieces,” said Chef Renée Bellefeuille. “With that as our inspiration, we built a prix fixe that reflects Kusama’s Japanese heritage.” The AGO Bistro will be serving unique Japanese flavours inspired by the Chef.
