Parlour 416.408.3666 http://www.parlour270.com open Thurs to Sun 9pm-2am
With its fireplace and chandeliers, the soaring room should be mightily imposing, but it isn’t. It’s lucky the room is so gorgeous and the music so rich, because the kitchen is empty. Being invited to the opening I was hoping to taste the restaurants new menu in any form, but was sadly disappointed. Even when I asked if the hors d’oeuvre floating around the velvety room reflected the menu in some same way – I was told the kitchen was not fully opened, and the food was outsourced. Whats with that? After ordering a martini at the bar I wandered into a quaint garden patio lined with shrubs, bamboo fences and paper lanterns. At first I thought the focus of this spot would be on the food and drink, but now I am not so sure.
