May 2015 – I walked past this restaurant so many times! Why did I wait so long!
A small restaurant on a quiet downtown street, between King & Queen, whose chef, Scott Vivian, has been praised by none other than Anthony Bourdain! We were in for a treat!
Food is served tapas-style, bread is home-made, produce and meats are sourced locally and the wine list features a lot of Canadian wines. A sample of what we had : house tartar, canadian artisanal cheeses (from Ontario, Québec and BC), smoked trout tart, cuttlefish. Everything was DE-LI-CIOUS! Since we were there between 5-7pm, a glass of Château des Charmes cabernet-sauvignon was only $5!
Service was professional and friendly. Overall, we had a great meal, at a very reasonable price. If you’re in Toronto, looking for a small, quiet restaurant with outstanding food, this restaurant is highly recommended!
Un petit restaurant sur une rue tranquille du centre-ville de Toronto, dont le chef a été salué par nul autre qu’Anthony Bourdain! Un menu qui met en vedette les viandes et légumes produits localement. Les vins canadiens dominent également la carte des vins. Un repas EX-CEL-LENT!! Si vous êtes à Toronto, à la recherche d’un petit resto de quartier qui vous sortira de l’ordinaire, The Beast est chaudement recommandé!
