Hg2 : The Hedonist

Scarpetta Toronto

This outpost of the New York celeb-magnet is another bold signifier of the arrival of destination dining in Toronto. The holding area for diners is the Thompson’s lobby bar, which leads through to the ground-level, street-side restaurant. 

Curved leather banquettes fashion a sensual ‘S’ down the spine of the room, making cosy nooks for couples and groups. The Italian-inspired menu runs the gamut from simple staples to more complex combinations, such as baby goat in a red wine jus with roasted pancetta or sweet short ribs with creamy farro. 

Chef Scott Conant has cloned his signature dish from the Big Apple – a mini-tower of spaghetti with tomato and basil – and proves his artistry by nailing it like its never been done before.
