Nota Bene, Toronto

180 Queen Street W.
Toronto , Ontario
Canada M5V 3X3
Tel: 416 977 6400's insider take:

Nota Bene counters its location on the edge of Toronto's very funky Queen Street neighborhood with a coolly composed, whitewashed dining room hung with bright, abstract paintings. Suits doing business deals fill the olive green banquettes at lunchtime, and give way to dressy, theater-going couples in the evening. Executive chef David Lee knows how to satisfy the crowd with quietly luxe dishes punctuated by Canadian flavors. The softshell crab salad is reason enough to come. So are the charred wild Digby sea scallops, a Stilton beef-brisket burger, and a sticky toffee pudding that would feel at home in the Cotswolds.—Raphael Kadushin
