4 Front St. E.,
Toronto, Ontario

The reboot of O&B’s iconic bistro is every bit as polished as its former self, luring back loyal clientele for power lunches and prix fixes. The vibe is a little less fusty, as new British touches blend with the place’s Parisian traditions: burgundy leather banquettes, black-and-white photos, and London-born bar snacks (rarebit, fish and chips) that offer casual alternatives to duck confit and steak frites. Chef Amanda Ray turns each dish into an artful assemblage of bright veggies, Canadian-raised proteins and surprising hits of flavour. A tiny pitcher of green gazpacho arrives with a plate of ­delicate smoked sturgeon, asparagus, cucumber ribbons and lemony buttermilk curd for what may be summer’s freshest appetizer. Relatively simple mains, like cumin-dusted lamb with fluffy gnocchi and al dente green beans, dazzle for their drop-dead-perfect cooking.
