Flor de Sal Adds to the Local Flavour

WITHIN SIGHT OF CASA LOMA, FLOR DE SAL FEATURES MEDITERRANEAN FLAVOURS OF THE HIGHEST CALIBRE

Flor de Sal Toronto Sign

Toronto’s streets are lined with older buildings. When they’re purchased, change—whether mild or drastic—is inevitable. That’s certainly the case with what was once The Corner House. Late in 2014, the quaint neighbourhood restaurant just down the hill from Casa Loma was gutted and gussied up; it’s now Flor de Sal, an elegant two-storey space where Forest Hill’s moneyed denizens devour dishes prepared by chef Roberto Fracchioni. He’s ideal for the fine-dining room: an experienced and exacting toque whose cooking is modern yet without the pretentions of modernism. See for yourself by ordering a few of his seasonal Mediterranean-influenced offerings, or simply tuck in to some fresh oysters and a glass of wine at the ground-level bar.  —Craig Moy
