417 Restaurant & Lounge
As a teen, Eleni Gountanos worked with her father at the family grocery store. Her passion for fresh, local produce became more nuanced as she got older, and today, she makes regional ingredients the cornerstone of her restaurant, 417 Restaurant & Lounge. Executive Chef Tyson Lambert incorporates said ingredients into European-inspired dishes. Those range from upscale versions of bar food, such as duck confit poutine, to the out-and-out upscale, such as braised beef check served with goat cheese soufflé. The bar likewise favours local flavours with an extensive selection of Ontario craft beers and microbrews. The rest of the drink menu includes local coffees, teas, and fixings for signature cocktails such as the beet down, a blend of tequila, honey, and beets.
Just as 417’s cuisine combines bar food and fine dining, its dining area blends elements of an upscale restaurant and a laidback lounge. Per the Toronto Star, “wall mounts of teeming water” surround diners alongside faux fireplaces, a safe, toasty alternative to trying to hide a bonfire under the table. The soundtrack bounces between the romantic crooning of Frank Sinatra to the anthemic melodies of Arcade Fire. Every Friday and Saturday night, those tunes give way to the upbeat playlists of live DJs who convert the two-level restaurant into a club complete with bottle service.
