Toronto, ON M6J 2Y7
It's hard to find a Torontonian who hasn't dined out on Ossington. The west end stretch, laden with restos and bars and bars masquerading as restos, is an easy destination for a nuit on the town. But back in 2009, when Union hopped onto the scene, the strip was far less trodden. Thanks to its ever-changing locavore bistro menu, the cosy space has remained relevant ever since. Meat is what they're known for; scoop habanero-jazzed steak tartare onto toast before noshing on medium-rare rib eye with a side of greens over frites (for the health). And yes, there should be creme brulee for dessert.
