This spacious, sleek and modern restaurant, with its stylish long bar and lounge overlooking lively Queen Street West, is unusually flexible in the roles it can play. For it possesses that rare sort of casual sophistication that fulfils the needs of the business lunch as easily as those of the pre-theatre crowd looking for a swanky prix fixe. And it is as logical a destination for a posh snack in the lounge as it is for a multi-course dinner in the dining room for occasions romantic or celebratory. Chef-owner David Lee’s menu is cosmopolitan and multi-ethnic in its influences, and his dishes emphasize finesse rather than flashiness. Think crispy duck salad with sumac-dusted green papaya slaw, sweet potato-and-ricotta ravioli with shaved chestnut, or braised beef cheek with confit of veal tongue and potato fritter. It also boasts one of the better dry-aged steak programs anywhere in the country. The wine list is extensive, with a good range of private imports.
