2023 - September


Set within a restored bank at College & Bathurst streets, the grand room—much like the food—has a rather transcendental, theatrical vibe. Nadia Di Donato, who designed the restaurant, refers to it as a “bespoke space,” and the vibe is part gothic church, part luxurious living room and part castello ballroom.

Notable details include an entryway marked by towering wood doors reclaimed from an Italian countryside palazzo and framed by Versace tiles, steel-pillared window treatments that conjure the pipes of a church organ, a structural beam transformed into a 27-foot-tall Corinthian-inspired pillar of maple, the original bank vault (it holds wine now), an Italian-imported antique fireplace, and a luxurious dining area with smooth velvet banquettes.
