Best Restaurants of Yorkville in Toronto

Toronto is made up of unique, fascinating neighbourhoods, so it’s time we paid homage to them. Especially when it comes to dining out. This week is all about the best restaurants in Yorkville. And while they might be more expensive that your usual burger joint, it will be well worth it.

Café Boulud

1
60 Yorkville Ave, Toronto, ON M4W 0A4

The reboot of this restaurant is phenomenal. The room is sexy and warm and the food is exactly what this city needed – elegant, sophisticated French that is still approachable. And good size portions too, so you don’t have to go out for dinner after dinner like at some places.

Sotto Sotto Ristorante

2
120 Avenue Rd, Toronto, ON M5R 2H4

Some people think that this restaurant gets attention because of all the celebs that frequent it. Well, it doesn’t hurt that our own Drake loves the place to pieces or that stars like Robert DeNiro stop by when they’re in town. But it’s about the homemade Italian dishes, and being made to feel that you are just as important a guest at the VIP over here and the politician over there.

The Host Fine Indian Cuisine

3
14 Prince Arthur Ave, Toronto, ON M5R 1A9

The Host has been serving up great Indian fare on Prince Arthur since 1997. Chef Sanjeev Sethi’s alluring tandoori dishes, curries and naans will satiate your craving for something spicy and savoury. Must haves include Murgh MirchTikka ($15.95) – a.k.a. green chicken tikka, and Tandoori Lobster ($27.95), because when else will you have lobster cooked in a clay oven like this?

L'Unità Restaurant

4
134 Avenue Rd, Toronto, ON M5R 2H6

This Italian osteria & wine bar is the perfect combo - a fun and casual atmosphere with serious food and wine. And the twists on classics are a must – Salt Cod Bruschetta ($12) instead of the usual tomato; Sweet Pea Arancini ($12) add a fresh sweetness to the dish;

The Oxley

5
121 Yorkville Ave, Toronto, ON M5R 1C4

This British gastro pub boasts fantastically dressed rooms (even the loo is gorge) as well as a fascinating menu. Once you go, you’ll want to return straight away. After all, where else can you find Arctic Char with Lemon Sparrow Noodles & Fava Beans ($27), Red Prawns & Dumplings with English Peas ($18), and Mushroom Pithivier & Young Leaves ($19)?

Sitting on the dock of the bay, or a patio downtown, or in the cool comfort of an air conditioned restaurant, nothing says summertime like fish and chips. Here are the city’s top 5 spots:
We are so fortunate in Toronto that we don’t have to wait for TIFF to arrive to get a sneak peek of Hollywood elite, supermodels and their ilk. If you want to star-gaze and get up close to celebs, head to these top 5 eateries in the city for VIPs and superstars.
One of the best ways to spend a summer evening is to catch a show. Whether you’re going out to a big theatre production such as Newsies or Kinky Boots, or you’re heading off to hear a performance by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Canadian Opera Company or Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra & Chamber Choir, you’re going to want to eat beforehand.
