TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – The newest addition to the culinary offerings at Hollywood Casino Toledo is coming from a local restauranteur and chef.
Shobu by Kengo is expected to open in late 2022. It will be the third restaurant for Chef Kengo Kato, who has been running Kengo Sushi and Yakitori in downtown Toledo since 2015. His other restaurant, Kato Ramen, is in development as well next to the Kengo location.
“I’m honored to be opening my third restaurant in Toledo and couldn’t ask for a better partner than the team at Hollywood,” said Chef Kengo Kato. “I’d like to thank the greater Toledo area for the support over the past seven years. This city has not only been the backbone of our success, but it has fulfilled my dream of expressing my art on multiple stages. Toledo is bursting with enthusiasm and heart, and I couldn’t be prouder to call it my home.”
