A destination for modern dining, Toku’s cuisine is predominantly Japanese with Chinese elements and touches of Thai, combining ingredients and cooking techniques from throughout the world.
Award-winning architects, Bentel & Bentel, created a space based on a 19th century Japanese home brought into the 21st century with ultramodern elements.
In 2007, Gillis and George Poll, opened Toku: a magnificent Modern Asian restaurant at Americana Manhasset, Long Island’s most impressive shopping destination. Having conquered steakhouse, seafood and Italian cuisines, The Poll brothers decided to try something new with Asian fare.
In their own international dining, Gillis and George have come across a variety of dishes that have really impressed them, “the best of the best.” According to Gillis, “We put together our favorites and added our own unique twist to them.” George emphasizes the menu’s ease and variety. “It’s a straightforward, casually written menu which allows you to dine any way that you’d like.”
Guests may enjoy traditional meals with an appetizer, entree and dessert, or dine exclusively on sushi. Others can order cocktails and a table full of appetizers and skewers to share. “The menu is set up for sharing,” he confirms. Anything goes when dining at Toku Modern Asian.
