CC Lounge located in the heart of Downtown Toronto by St. Lawrence Market, is a multi-faceted resto-bar lounge that exudes comfort, yet a high-energy vibe from both the staff & guests. Upon entering, you’ll find yourself face-to-face with a large bird-cage and extravagant crystal chandeliers frozen-in-swing. The venue itself is polished with pink and blue lights beaming on the surfaces and a hint of the 1920’s resides in the design of the leather couches, framed portraits, and whisky barrels.
The first North American location of Don Alfonso 1890 opened a couple of months ago and is already recognized as the “Best New Italian Restaurant in the World 2018”. Nick Di Donato from the Liberty Group and Michelin Star Chef Ernesto Iaccarino announced the exciting news of the Three-Fork designation from the prestigious Gamberro Rosso – the Italian equivalent of the Michelin Star.
With the new revitalized Union Station, Amano Pasta is a great addition as the first full-service restaurant. Chef Michael Angeloni envisioned the restaurant concept since childhood while making pasta in his nonna’s basement. Similar to Angeloni, as a second generation half-Italian Canadian, the dishes are Italian while many of the ingredients are not.
