Italian Restaurant
$$$$
“Authentic Italian restaurant, Drake even rapped about it! Our go to spot if you're craving risottos and seafood. Price is $$$$.”

Steakhouse
$$$$
“STK is a steakhouse befitting the Yorkville neighbourhood. With its imposing metal sign, doormen, and posh second floor dining room, it fits right in. The global franchise, with locations in places like Las Vegas, Milan, London and Ibiza, keeps elements of all locations consistent, but allows local chefs to play with the menu. I'm inclined to call it "Steak" out loud as this place is primarily a steakhouse, but it's pronounced S-T-K, following the recent trend of everyone being too cool for vowels.”
