Meaty mains still reign supreme in this city, but these recently opened seafood restaurants provide sanctuary for fish-favouring diners.

1  Gussied up Summerhill residents abandon decorum as they slurp the seasonal spread of mollusks from John and Sons Oyster House. But don’t just fill up on raw fare. Dishes like seared diver scallops ($25) and lobster poutine ($19) are also available.

Vancouver-trained chef David Friedman brings a bit of the West Coast to Red Fish—a number of his offerings have a whiff of Asian influence. A seafood-focused brunch satisfies weekend crowds.
