i havent done too many restaurant posts, which is surprising because i love trying new places and do it quite frequently. this summer i find myself working at brookfield place, right in the hub of torontos financial district - surprising i know. anyway, yesterday my dads lunch plans were cancelled and we went to vertical at first canadian place. although i hadnt been to the restaurant before, it was already a special space to me because my grandfather had a french restaurant in the same space when i was a child. i didnt recognize it at all, until we went out on the patio, which felt exactly the same. anyway, although chef tawfik shehata is not one of the bigger names in culonary toronto, his plates are very precise and innovative; you cant get them at any other restaurant. and despite the busy location, the patio was surprisingly comfortable and removed.
