The food

There’s a short menu of Paris Paris snacks, including a chicken liver pâté and mixed pickles, but the collaboration with Extra Burger means guests can get something a little more substantial with their wine, in the form of flat-top-cooked burgers and crinkle-cut fries. An after-midnight menu features Party Fries with all the fixings and half-price bottles.

The drinks

General manager Gabriel Parniak and Krysta Oben of Toronto’s Grape Witches are behind the changing list of interesting wines from around the world, with more Canadian producers on the way.

The space

The two-room restaurant is made up of Extra Burger’s standing-room-only space and Nice Nice’s 18-seat, no-reservation lounge. They’re separated by a beaded curtain. Come warmer weather, a street-side patio will seat 20 more guests.
