Won't be jet setting to Paris this year? No money to back pack through France? Not to worry as La Societe, 131 Bloor Street West, sets to bring a little Paris to Toronto in an unapologetic, stylish and comfortable bistro that is the newest brain child of hospitality giant, Charles Khabouth.
Doors open on June 15 for dinner. Lunch will be served daily and brunch on weekends.
I'm excited by the hyped up design; think aged mahogany, leather, light fixtures from Paris and a jaw dropping thirty foot stained glass ceiling mural.
It's going to be stunning.
It's also going to have the only patio on this stretch of Bloor, a raw seafood bar, glasses of wine at every price point and inexpensive burgers that will go great with pints of Kronenbourg.
A modern take on classic French food means you will certainly see a Nicoise salad, cassoulet and steak frites on the local where possible menu.
