The Shore Club

You Are Here: Wellington Street West

Cutting through the Financial District, this street can seem like home to little more than corporate skyscrapers. But delve deeper and you’ll find fine dining, shopping and entertainment destinations, all epitomizing downtown Toronto’s polish.

MUSICAL MONOLITH A bowl of inverted glass encases Roy Thomson Hall, one of Canada’s finest performance stages. Home to the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the venue also features an eclectic year-round lineup of shows—from classical and contemporary music to comedy, lectures and more—in an acoustically grand setting.

SEA AND STEAK A fixture in Ottawa and Vancouver, The Shore Club now offers its high-end surf and turf in Toronto, too. An interior that evokes the art deco ocean liners of yore sets an elegant tone for indulging in seafood staples, flawless steaks and inventive cocktails. (more…)

Hot Dining: New in Town

Bouillabaisse from The Shore Club.

In September 2010, the city got a new addition to its fine dining scene when The Shore Club opened in the Westin Hotel. Originally started in Vancouver, the restaurant made a name for itself based on its steak and seafood. Particularly popular is their signature bouillabaisse, filled with almost every type of seafood in the kitchen and finished with a saffron broth. With an elegant – yet modern – interior, this is the place to go whether you’re celebrating an anniversary or getting together for after work drinks. 11 Colonel By Dr., 613-569-5050.
