Summerlicious 2015: Where To Eat In Yorkville

Summerlicious is here, and there’s destination dining close to lots of our newest buildings! We’ve already given you the skinny on where to eat at Yonge & Eg and Yonge & Sheppard – now we’re heading a few notches south to Yorkville. Read on for our favourite picks in one of the Toronto’s most delicious neighbourhoods.

Sassafraz

This Yorkville staple is obviously on our list. Serving French-inspired Canadian cuisine, you’ll notice an emphasis on delicious, local ingredients. The menu showcases lots of amazing Ontario produce, and there’s no better time to dig in than in the middle of summer. Try braised rabbit or cornish hen as your main – and definitely get the Ontario cheese plate to finish. See the whole menu here.

Blu Restorante

Blu-Ristorante-Yorkville-Tour

If you’re looking for a date night option, Blu’s romantic atmosphere and warm, comforting Italian dishes are exactly what you need. Their Summerlicious menu steers clear of pizza and pasta, focusing instead on interesting proteins like beef cheek, and duck terrine. It might not be traditional, but we’d definitely round out a meal at Blu with their lime and coconut cannoli. See the whole menu here.

Mideastro Yorkville

Thinking outside the Italian box? Mideastro fuses, you guessed it, mediterranean and bistro fare for unique plates every time. Their Summerlicious menu has traditional options like Tagine, alongside nontraditional items like Miami short ribs. See the whole menu here.

Crème Brasserie

This French fusion spot has one of the most interesting and comprehensive Summerlicious menus we’ve seen, and those who frequent Creme Brasserie all year round know that everything is always executed to the highest standards. Go all in with the escargot to start, pick any of the mains, and finish with a peach-and-pear banana split, because, why not? See the whole menu here.

La Société

La-Societe--Dining-Room

If you’ve never been to this lushly decorated spot, now’s your chance! A hearty, more traditional menu is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, and the stained glass ceiling and amazing ambiance will make your visit feel really special. See the whole menu here.

6 Yorkville Gems

This probably comes as no surprise to you, but Yorkville is one of our favourite neighborhoods in Toronto. Condos in Yorkville unsurprisingly are some of the most luxurious in Canada. That’s why two of our projects, Exhibit and Crystal Blu, are located there.

With perhaps the highest concentration of luxury homes in Toronto, everyone knows Yorkville is undoubtedly the city’s most stylish neighbourhood to call home. In fact, it’s also recognized as one of the top ten shopping destinations in the world! Besides shopping and the Royal Ontario Museum of course, be sure to check out these other finds in this neighbourhood.

  1. MoRoCo We’ve heard that macarons are the new cupcakes – sounds perfect to us. MoRoCo has the best macarons in town – although their other offerings aren’t too shabby either. Buttercream filling sandwiched between delicate sweet-meringue based pastries … need we say more?
