Canoe is a Toronto showpiece, both for the lofty setting and superlative cuisine. It's also a favourite with the CEOs who toil in the concrete canyons of Bay Street: they habitually hit the bright, wood-panelled dining room between marathon meetings. But even if you're on a budget, you too can enjoy the panoramic view, a glass of Niagara chardonnay and light posh nosh at the bar. Should you seek further fulfilment - and you should, this is one of the country's best restaurants - we recommend the tasting menus, which show off the talents of executive chef Anthony Walsh. Canoe is also famous for using top Canadian ingredients - Albertan beef, Nova Scotia's lobster, Quebec cheeses and seasonal produce from local growers, plus superior local vintages.
