Here's a closer look at Toko V, the sleek and sexy pan-Asian restaurant — and upstairs counterpart to Village Kitchen — that opened last month in swanky Highland Park Village. Folks who frequented the place in its former days as Village Marquee will find little familiar here — gone are the white tablecloths and blingy chandeliers, replaced with a more casual, trendy setting that includes a ten-seat sushi bar where diners can watch sushi chef Daniel Chau (formerly of Steel) work his magic on rolls, nigiri and sashimi.

Meanwhile back in the kitchen, veteran chef Andre Natera is turning out modern takes on pan-Asian fare like sous vide orange ginger beef, spicy gochujang-glazed ribs, and a standout green papaya salad that gets added zing from tiny dried shrimp and fresh mint. Bartender Andrew Lotstetter is in charge of the cocktail menu, which utilizes many of the spirits from Jason Kosmas' 86 Company including Cana Brava Rum and the acclaimed Ford's Gin.
