  • Mildred's Temple Kitchen
    Though Mrs. Biederhof, Monty, and Veda play central roles in the world of Mildred Pierce, in Mildred’s Temple Kitchen, they’re covered in sauce and served on shared plates. Restaurateurs Donna Dooher and Kevin Gallagher discovered their mutual love for the classic novel and film when working in an upscale restaurant in Ottawa. Their shared passion for local, approachable cuisine led them to open their warehouse-district eatery in 1989, though they eventually settled in Liberty Village, where they continue to serve their character-inspired dishes with the aid of a diverse team of chefs. Their chefs draw from a range of culinary backgrounds to reinvent classic dishes with global twists, such as gnocchi poutine, Sri Lankan–style shrimp and crab cakes, and chicken biryani. Though many of their menu items change seasonally, some have been menu mainstays since the beginning, including burgers hand-ground in house, profiteroles infused with Lindt chocolate, and pancakes hand-raised on a farm. To ensure each dish lives up to its potential, staff members seek out the freshest potatoes, asparagus, strawberries, and other produce on twice-weekly visits to the Ontario Food Market and use only Ocean Wise–certified fish. Servers ferry dishes to small tables and a large, communal harvest table in the contemporary dining space, where hardwood floors contribute a rustic aesthetic and railroad-side windows spill in natural light while keeping out engine noises and railway bandits. A slightly raised, open kitchen lets diners watch their chefs prepare the meal, and an outdoor patio lets them bask in warmer weather.

    Cuisine Type: Gastropub Most popular offering: Habits burger, mac 'n' cheese, and nachos Reservations: Recommended Delivery / Take-out Available: No Alcohol: Full bar Number of Tables: 11–25 Outdoor Seating: Yes Established: 2011 Parking: Metered street parking Handicap Accessible: No Pro Tip: When making reservations, please advise of any allergies. Also be advised that groups of six and more have one bill and 18% gratuity. Q&A with the Owner In your own words, how would you describe your menu? Pub-style with a twist. We offer fresh ingredients in all of our menu items, but we tie everything to the "comfort-style" nostalgia that we all know and love in bars. What is one fun, unusual fact about your business? We infuse alcohols with our own favourite flavours in-house. We have also made custom infusions for private events. We are the third-largest whisky bar in the city. Are there any dishes on the menu you consider to be a hidden gem—not necessarily the most popular, but surprisingly delicious? We change our menu often, so this is a difficult question to answer. I recommend asking servers for the "hidden gem" instead of "what's popular"—you may surprise yourself.

  • Insomnia
    Low lights, wood detailing, and comfortable chairs create a casual lounge vibe at Insomnia, which fosters its namesake with a late-night atmosphere, drinks, and internationally-inspired comfort fare. Contemporary American and European fare populates the menu with dishes such as an 8-oz. ribeye steak in a red wine mushroom reduction. Crispy pizzas call out local locales such as the Queen Street topped with pesto, smoked salmon, and chèvre, or the Annex with grilled eggplant, roasted garlic, and portobello mushrooms. Dozens of martinis give patrons a reason to linger, with sips of innovative Rivera martinis or top-shelf martinis such as a classic preparation with Hendrick's cucumber-infused gin. A cluster of fairy lights twinkles above the bar and guides patrons to their tables, which are often occupied by complimentary imaginary friends. Against one of the exposed brick walls, paintings from monthly featured artists hang above a long wooden banquette faced with tables. On weekends, Insomnia serves brunch garnished with mimosas and martinis. Multiple variations on eggs benedict feature house-made hollandaise sauce and a Heaven on Earth french-toast sandwich channels dulcet divinity with a filling of wild berries and cream cheese drizzled in Canadian maple syrup.

  • Menchie's Toronto
    Though he couldn't have known it at the time, Adam Caldwell arranged what arguably could be considered one of the most successful first dates in modern history. He not only ended up marrying his date, Danna, but also had such a memorable time with her in the frozen-yogurt shop that the two of them were eventually inspired to start their own. They opened Menchie's Frozen Yogurt in California in 2007, and within just a few years, found themselves with a family of hundreds of thriving stores sprinkled all around the world. As the Menchie's brand grew, Adam and Danna kept a simple mission in mind: to make their customers smile. An adorable cast of animated characters is featured throughout the stores, including on the colorful spoons, and customers can have fun creating endless frozen-yogurt combinations. There are almost 150 rotating yogurt flavors, and the selection includes eight versions of vanilla. Of course, there are plenty of toppings as well, displayed in help-yourself bins filled with fresh fruit, nuts, cereal, and candy. The yogurt is made from fresh milk from a California dairy, and it is free of the artificial growth hormone rSBT. All the yogurt is kosher, and certain flavors accommodate vegan and gluten-free diets.

  • Globe Bistro
    Though he draws his inspiration from global flavours, Executive Chef Dan Sanders crafts Globe Bistro's dishes entirely from locally sourced ingredients. With bread baked and meat dry aged in-house, he creates upscale cuisine such as composed beet salad, braised ox-tail tortellini and elk tartare, dazzling diners with his culinary prowess and imitation of sizzling bacon from within the open kitchen. More than a dozen wines by the glass and hundreds of labels from Globe Bistro's VQA and Wine Spectator award-winning collection, including many bottles from local winemakers, highlight notes of flavour in the dishes. Meals unfold inside a former theatre and bowling alley whose original floors provide the foundation for Globe Bistro's three-level dining room. There, sumptuous chandeliers illuminate wall tapestries of dancing figures and a stage space for live music and media presentations. The second floor hosts intimate gatherings in the private dining room, and the rooftop patio and wine bar serve snacks and drinks every day starting at 4 p.m. while guests revel in full view of the darkening sky and the intricate pulley system that changes day to night.

  • Amaya the Indian Room
    Although its dishes hail from India, Amaya the Indian Room's food reflects its North American setting. Crafted from fresh local produce, the dishes are delicately spiced to accommodate a Western palate, rather than eye-wateringly hot. According to the eatery’s profile in the Globe and Mail, the restaurant's founders likewise opted for Western decor, outfitting their dining room with wood panelling and photographs, rather than the temple-inspired decor that they viewed as stereotypical. The upscale food, however, hews to the subcontinent’s culinary traditions. Diners can feast on lentils cooked for 12 hours in buttery tomato sauce, short ribs braised in kashmiri chili, and prawns bathed in coconut-milk curry. The wine-marinated lamb lollipops, meanwhile, are easier to eat than the original Indian lollipop, a tandoori oven on a stick. For an alternative to these à la carte items, the tasting menu lets patrons sample small portions of multiple dishes. The expansive wine list, meanwhile, pairs seamlessly with meals and offers a subversive touch—Indian food is typically served with beer.
