Hot Dining: Eats and Entertainment

What better way to work off your dinner than with a dance or two? You’ll find both food and fun at these Toronto supper clubs. The glamour of old Hollywood is prominent at The Roosevelt Room, with its art deco–styled interior and 1920s-inspired cocktail menu. Savour a sumptuous rack of Ontario lamb ($32.95) or Alberta beef filet ($31.95), then enjoy live jazz or vaudevillian entertainment. For a more contemporary experience, swanky Ultra serves steaks, of course, plus East-meets-West offerings like a baked half lobster with chipotle hollandaise ($21) or miso-glazed black cod ($26), before sending you on to the dance floor. And if you like to do the salsa and eat it, too, then a night at Babalúu is in order. Relish Latin fusion options—entrees, tapas dishes and huge shareable paellas—then partake in a complimentary and caliente dance lesson.
