Toronto’s most unusual dining venue – Part 2 – For Location

So in the last blog I chose to feature dining experiences set apart by their access to spectacular views of Toronto

This article features restaurants categorized according to their out-of -the-ordinary locations:

• The Rectory Cafe on Toronto Island
A slice of cottage country on the City’s doorstep, The secluded oasis that is Rectory Cafe is located on Ward island within a shady sun- dappled copse scooched up to The Island’s tree lined board walk.
With interesting menu options and cocktails this is a delightful place to dine at any time of day but an especially beguiling venue in the evening when most of the day trippers have returned home as it is open till 10pm in the summer.

Arriba Restaurant – Renaissance Hotel
From its magnificent vantage point high up in the Rogers Skydome a meal at Arriba combines dynamic dining with an opportunity to catch a Blue Jays game. A window-on-the-game meal is served with a side of baseball snippets by enthusiastic serving staff.

Auberge du Pommier
One wouldn’t just come across this Oliver and Bonacini owned gem, as this tiny French restaurant – carefully restored around two 1860’s woodcutters cottages – is tucked away off the beaten track, and shrouded amongst the densely packed skyscrapers of one of North York’s busy financial and business districts
Serving the most delectable and much lauded French food in a atmospheric wood- smoke drenched space complete with a huge wood burning fireplace.
