Set inside a log cabin big enough for Paul Bunyan himself, The Grizzly Grill transforms classic lodge fare such as steaks, ribs, and venison into upscale contemporary cuisine. After admiring the rustic decor of hardwood floors and exposed ceiling joists, patrons can head upstairs to shoot pool or chalk their elbows in the billiard loft. Alternatively, the bar area?dubbed The Lodge?lets imbibers linger out weekend nights with live DJs and a late-night menu or make goo-goo eyes at a bison head next to a romantic roaring fireplace. The dining room teems with the kitchen?s signature creations, which range from pan-seared pickerel in a sweet-pepper curry to AAA beef such as a 10-ounce new york strip loin and a 14-ounce rib steak. Toppings such as garlic oil, baby spinach, chèvre, and honey-roasted veggies add colour and texture to wood-fired pizzas. Like feral teddy bears, slow-roasted prime rib comes in three sizes: small, regular, and grizzly.

On the second story of a quaint building, the chefs of Tata's House of Pizza & Pasta churn out pies slathered in housemade sauce and decorated with toppings ranging from salami to fresh garlic. Along with a menu of bubbling pizzas, the staff slathers wings in honey-garlic and “Suicide” sauce, dress up burgers with bacon and cheese, and pile slabs of housemade lasagna onto plates with fresh-made garlic bread.

Spinning skewered halal meats over sizzling coals, Kingston Iranian’s chefs treat locals to flavourful, authentic fare from the cradle of civilization. Before diving into one of the homemade kebab dishes diners can gear up gustatory glands with six tantalizing tears of pita bread ($3.50) or freshly baked Persian Barbary bread ($2), which can be pleasantly paired with a plate of hummus ($4.99). The kebab vaziri ($11.99) combines charcoal-grilled lemon chicken with a grilled ground beef kebab, jockeying for plate space with rice, cucumber, tomatoes, and lettuce. Similarly sating, the lamb shank’s ($8.99) tender meat slides off the bone and lands gently in a bed of rice, cucumber, and tomatoes, lending a false sense of security to morsels soon lifted mouthward. Like the soles of firewalkers, the white meat chicken kebab ($8.99) conceals tender white meat beneath a golden coating of fiery flavours acquired over the charcoal embers, served with rice and vegetables.

The co-operative workers at Sleepless Goat Cafe jolt taste buds into alertness with freshly brewed organic and fair-trade coffees. A light-roast Guatemalan brew eases mouths into morning routines, and the Sumatran dark roast emits tendrils of bold, fragrant steam. Though not included with today’s Groupon, patrons can couple hot coffee with breakfast fare such as french toast and omelettes ($5–$8.50), or drop in to nosh on dinner items such as homemade vegan soups paired with homemade whole-wheat bread ($4.19). Additionally, Sleepless Goat upholds community-minded principles by hosting regular art installations, live music, and nourishing all hungry bellies, regardless of patrons' economic means.

At West Seventy6 Grill, Executive Chef Jamie Hussey crafts an eclectic menu of seasonal fare derived from fresh, local ingredients. Before diving into main dishes, diners can prime their palates with starters such as crab cakes, adorned with pea tendrils and a maple-and-chipotle rémoulade ($13). Main courses include a trio of certified-Angus steaks aged 28 days, trained in elocution and comportment, and finished with a house-made rub. The juicy 14-ounce rib eye comes accompanied by a double-stuffed Jackson potato and locally farmed seasonal vegetables ($36). Meanwhile, the kitchen stuffs its chicken Supreme with apple-smoked bacon and cheddar ($24) and marinates its Ontario lamb-rack chops in lemon and thyme before pairing them with oyster mushroom and arugula risotto in an emotional commitment ceremony ($34). Guests can sample these edibles while sipping one of West Seventy6 Grill's specialty cocktails or while taking in waterfront views of Lake Ontario from the dining room or an outdoor patio overlooking the water.
