After having opened its first Toronto location last winter, unable to welcome guests indoors, Minami has now opened its outdoor patio.

Launched at the height of the pandemic, the contemporary Japanese restaurant has joined several other restaurants in the city in opening its patio as of March 31.

According to the restaurant, Minami’s patio will have a capacity of 60 and increase to 101 once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.

“We have gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure a safe and pleasant dining experience,” said Dean Harrison, National Marketing Director for Aburi Restaurants Canada.

“We are capping reservations at no more than 4 people per table, from the same household, intermingling between tables is strictly prohibited, and all guests will provide contact info via a QR code upon arrival.”
