There are tons of lux spots in Toronto to eat. I cannot talk about luxury lifestyles without discussing these places as well! I would love to hear about your suggestions, and thoughts on any of these places (if you have been to them).

Alo: known for its avant-garde approach and technical precision. The restaurant is located between Queen and Spadina Streets, in a loft-like space that looks out over Queen Street. Experience expert service, artful plating and rustic charms.

Sushi Kaji: In Toronto, foodies can enjoy sushi prepared with the same precision and quality as you’d find in Tokyo, but it’s available right here in Toronto too. The decor is minimal, with blond wood and a sushi bar serving as the audience seating for the sushi chefs. There is no á la carte menu; you just trust the chefs to lead you on your journey.

Jacobs & Co Steakhouse: Every cut of steak on the menu has an elaborate story. Breeds include Angus and Hereford; Kobe and Wagyu. Whether you’re undecided or overwhelmed, you can opt for a blind tasting menu, which offers a range of flavors, tastes, and textures. For something extra special, you could choose the seafood tower which features an ocean’s worth of lobster, raw oysters, mussels, king crab, and more.

The Chase: Take your first bite from the opulent Diamond Platter, which arrives with layers of fresh ocean Fogo Island snow crab, lobster, prawns and oysters. After that, if you’ve got any room left for more, shareable indulgences are available; the most popular is the roasted halibut with creamer potatoes and tarragon butter, finished with toasted brioche crust and a mushroom sauce.

Louix Louis: Louix Louis’s culinary creations are over the top and unabashedly decadent, so get ready for a lot of caviar and foie gras. Executive chef Guillaume Robin brings to the restaurant contemporary American cuisine with French influences . Coming from France, he brings experience from Michelin-starred kitchens across Europe.

Buca: The restaurant is deliberately basic to let diners focus on the experience and food. Chef Rob Gentile showcases Italian cuisine at its finest. In their ionza (cured pork), salsiccia and loin (spicy calabrese pork sausage), to their bigoli (duck offal ragu and mascarpone) and neri di maiale (pork blood pasta tossed with nduja, rapini and smoked burrata). Make sure to take a look at their wine list, which boasts over 300 labels from all regions of Italy.

Having reviewed and written this list, my mouth is watering and I’m craving to try one of these restaurants. Which would you choose? I am ready to try Buca and Alo! Happy eating!
