Summerlicious: Brassaii

Brassaii is conveniently located in the heart of the stylish King West District.

"Brassaii Restaurant and Lounge is Toronto’s sophisticated nouveau riche cosmopolitan and culture destination. Nestled amidst a romantic cobblestone palazzo courtyard and charming outdoor patio, Brassaii embraces its architectural heritage, elevating your fine dining experience to an expedition in urban archeology and design.

The newly renovated venue contain a café, exposed, robust wine cellar, dining area, chic bar and lounge space, as well as an events room for private bookings. Brassaii offers a tantalizing menu inspired by interpretive, scintillating, Mediterranean fare crafted by celebrated executive chef Bruce Woods. Open seven days a week for lunch and late night dining, Brassaii also caters to the music and arts crowd by featuring performances, art exhibits and intimate show programming.

Brassaii is a visual expression in early French Renaissance details married with modern, progressive SOHO inspired design innovations. The Brassaii experience is portraiture of decadent, VIP luxury, while maintaining a warm, classic, celebratory environment."

I love having lunch dates with girlfriends, and today I went with my best friend. The environment is relaxing, not too loud and tables are not too close together. I had such a nice catch up session. It was much needed =)

Most yummy white wine tasted to date. The server recommended this to us, it was awesome =)
