Elegant and sophisticated, Old World charm meets contemporary chic in the historic building housing the two-level dining room. Formerly the main branch of the gas company, the front doors are lit at night by Toronto's first gas lanterns. The marble-clad dining room with its vaulted ceiling, intricate moldings, mezzanine seating area and oversize, throne-inspired banquettes provides the perfect backdrop for a night of indulgent dining. The menu changes often, focusing on creative preparations. Many decadent items are offered, including seared foie gras; wild mushroom risotto; seared scallops with pancetta, corn and truffle foam; braised lamb and wild salmon. Noteworthy for dessert was the Earl Grey-flavored ice cream that accompanied the crème brûlée.
