Name: The Beverley Hotel Contact Info: 335 Queen St. W., thebeverleyhotel.ca, 416-493-2786, @beverleyhotelTO
Neighbourhood: Queen West Owners: Michael Homewood and Mike Strong
Executive chef: Eric Wood, the former chef at Hawthorne Food and Drink in the Financial District

The place: A five-floor boutique hotel with a restaurant, a Miami-style rooftop lounge and 18 guest rooms. The ground-floor dining room has a masculine feel with polished concrete floors, stainless steel accents and two walls papered with black-and-white shots of Queen West.

The Food:  Contemporary Canadian food with a focus on seasonal produce, like roasted-chanterelle garganelle with ramps and a Caesar salad made with dinosaur kale. A sharing plate called the 4-Play, a holdover from chef Wood’s Hawthorne days (which was a holdover from his Fabarnak days) includes four appetizers that change daily. The rooftop patio has a more casual menu with wraps, burgers and salads.

The drinks: Summery mojitos, margaritas and a tequila-based drink called the Hey Beautiful! made with strawberry–black pepper liqueur and mole bitters. The wine list divides bottles into ones for sipping ($35–65) and ones for savouring ($55–330).

The Numbers: • $140 for the cheapest room at the hotel • $40 for the Vulgar & Sublime, a combination of house-made potato chips, sturgeon caviar and crème fraiche • 4 appetizers included in the 4-Play sampler • 1 Prohibition-style speakeasy in the works for the hotel’s basement
