Drink This: the elderflower martini at Park Hyatt Toronto


Published:

Although the weather is rapidly cooling off, there are still some patio-worthy days remaining. With that in mind, the rooftop lounge at Park Hyatt Toronto is a cozy space, outfitted with tufted leather banquettes, tables nestled closely together and Joe Gomes behind the bar (he’s only been there 53 years). Out on the patio, imbibers can sip on one of his cocktails while taking in the season’s changing colours and peering out at the CN Tower.

Our pick is the rather festive elderflower martini ($24). Pairing Grey Goose La Poire with St-Germain artisinal elderflower liqueur, the drink is finished with Anna Spinato prosecco and a sliver of bosc pear. With each beverage comes a dish of olives, almonds and bar mix, and should the mood strike, patrons can dabble in a fine Cuban cigar.

Park Hyatt Toronto, 4 Avenue Rd., 416-925-1234

Restaurant Review: Seafood abounds at Ardo, Corktown’s Sicilian eatery

Then there’s Ardo, the super-popular newish Sicilian restaurant in Corktown. It’s friendly and pleasant-looking, done in pale colours with warm lighting, Sicilian tchotchkes and a great buzz. Lots of people, lots of noise. And a few ringside bar seats overlooking the fast-moving and superbly fragrant open kitchen.
