Restaurants devoted to the creatures of the sea are gaining ground in Toronto, and Ossington’s Fishbar — which recently rang in its second birthday — was on the cusp of the trend. Fishbar keeps the focus on sustainable catches, with most of the menu being Ocean Wise certified.

The seafood focus extends to the drinks list, with the cheekily named Octopussy ($12) elevating the martini a notch. Starring Tanqueray gin and Martini & Rossi vermouth, the drink is finished with some oyster brine and a freshly shucked oyster — a Malpeque — to make the last sip extra tasty.  

Fishbar, 217 Ossington Ave., 647-340-0227
