An intimate restaurant with a charming back patio, this downtown gem serves up a playful menu of global fare with trendy touches like the “Mason Jar” salad, southern fried chicken and bone marrow foie gras pate. There’s a slew of options for the adventurous foodie to the vegetarian, paired perfectly with their hand-crafted cocktails. With a relaxed, thoughtful service and elevated dishes, it’s ideal for happy hour or a romantic dinner for two.

What You Need to Get: Large enough to make a meal, the Smoked Salmon Kale Salad was light, but filling. Our favourite of the specialty cocktails was The Refresher, muddled with cucumber, mint and lime, it was indeed refreshing.
