Upstairs bar

After John and I attended the preview menu tasting at Montecito, we were commissioned to do photography for the menu, cocktails and the beautiful venue itself.

Chef John Waxman and Ivan Reitman

From co-owners, Hollywood director Ivan Reitman and world-renowned chef Jonathan Waxman, come Montecito – a new restaurant in the heart of the entertainment district. The restaurant takes its inspiration from its southern California namesake, both in the picturesque setting and its cuisine.

It was the idea and the potential that got my mind enthralled, my mouth salivating and my stomach growling. The potential for a world-renowned chef, Jonathan Waxman and Toronto native, restaurateur and Hollywood director, Ivan Reitman, to transform the void that exists in the entertainment district with such a restaurant; charming, eclectic, upscale but warm and inviting. A destination for both foodies and socialites alike. A new Toronto dining experience is soon to be born.
