Hot Dining: Oliver & Bonacini’s Latest

Add another jewel to the downtown crown of the Oliver & Bonacini dining empire. The company’s portfolio includes Financial District stalwarts Canoe, Jump and Biff’s Bistro—plus Auberge du Pommier in north Toronto. Now its Oliver & Bonacini Café Grill chain has expanded into a 14,500-square-foot space at the busy intersection of Yonge and Front streets. The casual-chic eatery sports a bar and lounge, a wraparound patio and an airy dining room that’s open daily for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. You’ll want to book a table for all three meals—the better to indulge in eclectic cuisine like rock shrimp linguine ($16.50), pancetta and mushroom pizza ($15.95) and a rack of New Zealand lamb ($29.50).
