You can excuse Barberian's for having a slightly dated atmosphere (and website). The restaurant opened in 1959 and some of the patrons have a long standing history, equating Barberian's with celebration for more than 50 years, which certainly bodes well. Barberian's has a simple charm with artwork by the Group of Seven hanging on the walls. All of the steaks are aged on the premises. There are a myriad of steak sizes and proportions, and the chef's quiet confidence shines through from the first bite. If you are not in the mood for steak, rack of lamb with mint jelly and salmon also get rave reviews. If you have a special occasion, consider renting out the Wine Cellar at Barbarians. Housing 20,000 bottles floor to ceiling with the fragrance of fresh cork, it is an unforgettable space. Ask to visit before you sit down for dinner.
- Steakhouses: "Consider going to Barberian's after a night at the theatre. They have a wonderful after-theatre menu, which includes cheese or beef fondue for two. Enjoy the free pickled vegetables, which some claim are even better than the incredible steak. Plus, you don't get a lot of free at most steakhouses."
- Best for Steakhouses Because: Barberian's is guaranteed to impress, whether it is an esteemed colleague or an admired date.
