Expense It!

Among the many high-end venues in the Financial District’s skyscrapers, quintessentially Canadian Canoe is literally a top choice, on the 54th floor of the Toronto Dominion Centre. In the same building, Bymark serves upscale-bar-style fare, including a gourmet burger topped with Brie de Meaux, grilled porcini, pancetta and shaved truffles. Mediterranean-inspired fine-dining and lounge menus have made Vertical increasingly popular, and at Ki Modern Japanese + Bar, suits gather for raw nibbles and sake-based cocktails. Bâton Rouge Restaurant & Bar gets high praise from Where readers: its famous ribs and gracious hospitality garnered MMM Awards for Best Business Lunch and Best Service. The award-winning wine list at Reds Bistro matches well with cuisine inspired by vintners’ regions like Languedoc, Tuscany and Niagara. Away from Bay Street, elegant spots George and Chez Victor are frequented by discerning executives seeking first-class vintages and fresh seasonal fare. Young designers congregate at chic and spacious Brassaii Bistro Lounge after a day of toil in the Fashion District. And of course, Yorkville always has good eats: those in the know head to Pangaea to enjoy chef Martin Kouprie’s frequently changing offerings in an agreeably low-key space. Opus Restaurant on Prince Arthur evokes the atmosphere of an exclusive supper club and, with a 40,000-bottle wine cellar, it’s one of only two Wine Spectator Grand Award winners in Canada. On the city’s edges, smart-casual dining reigns at multiple Moxie’s Classic Grill locations.
