Beast In Toronto

BEAST_LEAD_TorontoCityGuide

GO HERE: for meaty whole-animal feasts and one of the best brunches in the city, if your ideal brunch includes house-made biscuit sandwiches and booze. Chef Scott Vivian is an unofficial ambassador for Toronto’s food scene, lobbying out-of-town tastemakers like Anthony Bourdain to experience the city and bringing in guest chefs from all over the U.S. to host one-night-only dinners at his small restaurant, tucked away on a downtown residential street. It’s always been a popular spot with restaurant industry types.

ORDER THE: whole menu. Parties of three or four can probably tackle all 15-ish dishes, which change often and frequently hit Mexican, South American, Middle Eastern, Vietnamese, and Korean notes. The whole-animal dinners, which feature a different part of a selected animal for each of six courses, can be booked one week in advance.

THE VIBE IS: boisterous on a packed night, with lots of tables crammed into a space that’s roughly the size of a small townhouse.

PRACTICAL STUFF: Dinner hours are Wednesday–Saturday from 5 to 10 p.m. Brunch hours (first come, first served) are Wednesday–Sunday and holiday Mondays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
