Toronto, ON M5V 1L7
Inspired by the resto-bars of the 1930s, the Citizen is one of Toronto's most old school–looking hot spots. With some original beams from the historic Gooderham and Worts distillery, Toronto's heritage is celebrated further by a innovative menu that highlights the chef's takes on local ingredients. The Citizen’s culinary philosophy is guided by a simple principle: if food is made with love, guests will always be happy. That's how the Citizen got menu favourites like the asparagus and truffle farfalle made with cremini mushrooms, local asparagus, homemade pesto cream, truffle oil and pecorino — all served at a place where you can catch the game, hang out on the patio, enjoy a cosy dinner for two or party late into the night. But note the upscale dress code enforced Thursday through Sunday nights.
