What’s on the menu at Canis, a new bistro serving rustic Canadiana
Neighbourhood: Trinity Bellwoods
Contact: 746 Queen St. W., 416-203-3317, canisrestaurant.com
Previously: One of a Kind Pasta
Chef and Owner: Jeff Kang (Bosk)
Casual fine dining that highlights seasonal Canadian ingredients (Kang calls it “bistronomy”). The dinner-only menu includes snacks (oysters, house-cured meat, cauliflower falafel), starters (beef tartare, ricotta-stuffed pasta, foie gras) and more substantial dinner plates, like a whole roasted and dry-aged duck for two.
Three large-format beers (right now, a trio of Beau’s bottles) and a rotating selection of organic wines, some of which are available by the glass.
The austere, 28-seat room is decked out primarily with concrete, wood and leather.
