You would never confuse downtown Toronto with California. Besides having a formidable winter, it also likes a New York pace and prides itself on efficiency rather than a relaxed attitude. However, after avocados reached celebrity status, the intrigue in Californian cuisine picked up momentum. Montecito Restaurant brings a taste of California to Toronto's Entertainment District for those that need a breather from avocado toast (which of course is on the Sunday brunch menu). A collaboration between Hollywood Director Ivan Reitman and Innov8 Hospitality, Montecito is steps from the Toronto International Film Festival Lightbox. Farm-to-table Californian cuisine uses Canadian ingredients, like the Ontario Grassfed Striploin and and B.C. Mussel Tagliatelle. Simple ingredients showcase the best in Canada coast to coast.
- Entertainment District's Best Restaurants: "For the table, try the Cumbrae Farms 45-Day 32 oz Dry Aged Ribeye, carved and served family style."
- Best for Entertainment District's Best Restaurants Because: Craft cocktails, California-Canadian cuisine and a location literally set by a Hollywood director.
