There are fully grown adults who suffer through vegetables on a daily basis, but save their delight for when their mouth meets a heavenly piece of beef. For those adults, the steakhouse was created. Toronto has many steakhouses that have an old-world charm with a gentleman's club vibe (with ladies certainly welcome these days). We have found the best restaurants with the ability to sear steak to perfection. Some of them are a little dated in terms of decor, but that's in part what makes them so appealing.
Note the elegant magnetism of Barberians, a steakhouse that is tucked onto a side street just steps from the commotion of Yonge and Dundas Square. It will transport you from our technological universe, into an era where the sizzle of steak could be just the ticket for an early end to a workday. Or try your hand at dry-aged beef at Jacob's & Co, which can be served with sauteed kale with blue cheese and walnuts. Food math: kale will absorb all other calories surrounding it.
Wash down your once-in-a-lifetime (or ten-times-in-a-lifetime) meal with a $12,000 bottle of wine. Wait, you can't afford that? Us neither. But that doesn't mean we don't deserve a little fancy in our lives. Slip into your finest suit or little black dress and slow down your chewing speed for an evening.
