Hot Dining: French Flair at La Société

Photo by George Pimentel

Toronto’s tastemakers have been out in full force ever since La Société brought Parisian glamour back to the Bloor Street strip. The large bistro from hospitality impresario Charles Khabouth exudes easy-going sophistication in a second-floor space that’s dressed with a glowing bar, leather banquettes, bronze statuettes and a handcrafted stained-glass ceiling. French classics fill the menu with such offerings as duck confit ($28) and steak frites ($26), though fresh seafood and fish dishes are definitely highlighted. With summer in full swing, request a table on the terrace or street-level patio—adjacent to Toronto’s Cartier boutique, of course—for one of the city’s better people-watching experiences.
