T.O.’s new French bistro will make you feel like you’re dining on the streets of Paris

Craving fine dining in the east end? Cabbagetown’s French spot, L’Avenue, has exactly what you’re looking for. From décor to menu, the 583 Parliament St. spot is just another reason to make the trek slightly east.

Come in for an elevated French dining experience with classics like St. Tropez crab cake, foie gras terrine, truffle pizza, lobster spaghetti and of course, oysters. The entrees are hearty and fresh, with options like grilled Chilean sea bass or a 32 oz USDA bone-in rib steak.

Sitting on the patio and sipping from their expansive wine menu will have you thinking you’re on vacation. The outdoor space is airy and ultra-Instagrammable, making it the perfect oasis right in the heart of the city’s vibrant east end neighbourhood. The interior is just as beautiful – a white and marble design coupled with elegant chandeliers makes the space feel like a true fine dining spot.

Looking for something a little lighter this summer? L’Avenue has got you covered with grilled salmon served on a bed of wild rice and seasonal vegetables or fresh salads like tomato burrata or mixed greens.

Make a reservation by calling 647-368-8008. L’Avenue is open Monday to Thursday from 5-10:30 p.m. and Friday to Saturday 5-11 p.m.

Bon Appétit!
