Hot Dining: Rules to Eat By

photo by Rick O'Brien

Toronto residents and visitors who observe Jewish dietary laws have a fine-dining destination to call their own. Midtown’s 398 West specializes in contemporary kosher cuisine made, whenever possible, with local ingredients. Of course, gentiles are also welcome to enjoy the elegant ambience and sample from chef Mitchell Lipperman’s menu—house-smoked Alaskan black cod with braised fennel, celery root, artichokes and tomato consommé ($40), and dry-aged rib steaks with market-fresh vegetables ($39 to $65 depending on size) are just a couple of the savoury options. Smaller appetites are well served by a spread of bar bites and sushi, too.
