Get Booze and BBQ at The Carbon Bar


It’s a real challenge to become the “It” eatery of Toronto’s highly competitive dining scene. The Carbon Bar, however, checks all the right boxes for attaining “eat here now” status: a big-time chef and co-owner in Nota Bene’s David Lee; a no-expense-spared designer space—once a TV studio and nightclub—that still manages to convey casual conviviality; a well-curated list of cocktails, wines and craft beers; and, of course, flavourful fare that’s at once familiar and gourmet in its execution. That food? Contemporary American, heavy on the Southern influences, with sharing-ready bar snacks and appetizers, plus more filling options including a number of meats slow-roasted in a wood fire pit.  —Craig Moy
