My Toronto, she’s a real beauty. Whether it’s her gleaming glass towers standing tall against a placid waterfront; or her unique flair that spreads from the eclectic to the urbane; or her unyielding desire for gastronomic reinvention … she sure makes it hard not to love her.

How do you stop taking her for granted and inject the passion back into this megalopolitan love affair? Well, you can start with taking a short elevator ride up to Chez Lavelle … and brace yourself to be immersed in all her shiny, reflecting glory.

Despite Toronto’s soaring skyline, decent rooftop bars are a mere handful. Lavelle’s uninterrupted views definitely score it high on the charts. And once you’ve drunk in the vistas, it’s Executive Chef Romain Avril’s featured dishes that will leave you craving more. Check out Gastroworld’s review here.

Impress out-of-towners, soak in the sun by the poolside cabanas, celebrate a special occasion, or just go in for a great meal – Chez Lavelle is bound to make you fall in love with The 6ix over and over again.
