Cliques of young professionals gab overtop a mellow surf rock soundtrack at The Passenger, while the early cohort of diners (hip, tattoo-clad nuclear families) finish their suppers just in time for the noise level crescendo. On Thursday nights the restaurant transforms from a classy neighbourhood joint into a prohibition era-reminiscent speakeasy. At 10:00 p.m. local jazz trio, The J Train, entertains the cocktail sipping crowd with Sonny Rollins covers. Come Sunday morning, the 48-seat restaurant is once again packed and bursting with families enjoying organic eggs and lemon-ricotta pancake stacks.

When a space across the street from Michelle Vella and Heather Osler’s restaurant The Beet became available, the duo originally contemplated expanding their tiny organic eatery. After some reflection, Michelle and Heather decided to keep The Beet where it was and open a new restaurant, inspired by the new space.

The best happy hours in Toronto’s west end

The best happy hours in Toronto’s west end

The Passenger finds its home in a vintage art deco space in Toronto’s Junction neighbourhood. This ultra-cool eatery serves up new Canadiana dishes and drink specials all week long. The best bang for your buck is the half-priced bottles of wine on Wednesday nights. Chill out on the patio under sprawling black umbrellas and twinkling white lights. Grab the syrah and pair it with a pile of crunchy, salty smelt fries, dressed with a fresh lemon wedge. It’s the perfect spot if you’re seeking a long, lazy night on the patio.

Cozy on down to these pubs in Toronto’s Junction

Cozy on down to these pubs in Toronto’s Junction

The newest arrival to The Junction offers an altogether different atmosphere from its neighbours. This upscale, art deco-themed gastropub provides a sophisticated setting for cocktails and conversation. Despite the exposed kitchen and trendy industrial decor, The Passenger is a relatively quiet, intimate setting for wining and dining, and wining a bit more.

The best new brunch spots in Toronto's west end

The best new brunch spots in Toronto's west end

This eclectic Junction spot is full of romantic-meets-industrial décor nods and a menu that is both refreshingly original and internationally inspired. The Passenger has an ethical mandate to keep everything local, in-season, ethically raised and sustainably caught. In terms of brunch fare, the standout here is the lemon ricotta and poppy seed pancakes: light, fluffy sweetness you can feel good about eating.
