Summer is a season for relaxation—the last thing you ought to be doing is stressing over small decisions. At mealtime, don’t worry about picking the perfect dish from a long list. Instead, put your trust in the exclusive tasting menus of some top chefs. With its dedication to the freshest seasonal ingredients, elegant George has long been one of Toronto’s best dining bets—
elevate the experience by ordering chef Lorenzo Loseto’s 10-course tasting ($150), which includes cheese and dessert courses. Curious gastronomes are invited to book the six-seat “kitchen table” at Colborne Lane, to see chef Claudio Aprile at work and enjoy his diverse 15-course spread ($179). And for a truly memorable meal, allow chef Masaki Hashimoto to please your palate with the unique Japanese dishes on his ever-
changing nine-course carte ($300) at Kaiseki Yu-Zen Hashimoto.
