El Catrin

Both inside and out, this modern cantina — which used to be The Boiler House — is decked out with eye-tantalizing details, many of which have been imported straight from Mexico. Southern Mexican dishes from Oaxaca and Yucatan (there are six different ceviches on offer) dominate the modern tapas-style menu. Almost everything is made in house, including the corn tortillas and the mole, and brunch and lunch services are slated to start in the next few weeks. 18 Tank House Lane.



Escape winter and travel south at Marked all-inclusive Bubbles and Brunch. The menu boasts unlimited small plates, like the Manchego Biscuit Benny, Patatas Bravas and Brazilian French Toast paired with bottomless prosecco priced at $95 per person. 132 John St.

Bar Goa


The latest in a long line of restaurants from Toronto restauranteur Hemant Bhagwani, Bar Goa is offering Torontonians a wallet-friendly  ten-course Indian omakase menu, and things are getting “bougie.” The new menu emphasizes presentation and offers two options: a six-course standard omakase priced at $60 for vegetarian and $70 for non-vegetarian (with an additional $40 for beverage pairing), and a ‘bougie’ 10-course omakase at $90 for vegetarian and $110 for non-vegetarian (with an extra $60 for beverage pairing). One of the standout items across all menu variations is the chaat, a popular Indian street food. It boasts a unique twist, aiming for a more ‘theatrical’ experience with a crunchy tart base topped with blackberries and pomegranate, all presented over a bed of dry ice. 36 Toronto St.
