Hot Dining: Bent Keeps Food in the Family

Dotted with smallish, neighbourhood restaurants that nonetheless draw diners from across the city—see The Black Hoof, Campagnolo and more—the Dundas West strip is now even more foodie friendly, courtesy of a top chef and his clan. Bent is the second Toronto outpost for experiencing the food of Asian-fusion master Susur Lee, offering a seafood-heavy carte of casual bites prepared with cosmopolitan flair. In keeping with the area’s inclusive vibe, the restaurant itself is run with confidence by the chef’s sons, Kai and Levi Bent-Lee; his wife, Brenda Bent-Lee, designed the nostalgia-tinged interior featuring subway tiles, church pews and a trio of antique pachinko machines.  —Craig Moy
