Audiophiles and foodies rejoice! In a city bursting with flavours and tunes, it’s actually rather rare that we see them walking hand in hand in a love story worthy of our attention. But with the recent opening of Jazz Bistro – in the former Top O’ The Senator space – we now have an awesome live music and dining destination right in the downtown core.
Even though Victoria Street borders Yonge and Dundas Square, it’s a pretty quiet thoroughfare. That’s changing with Jazz Bistro’s live music offerings six days a week. Providing a hub to showcase some of the greatest local and international talent, Jazz Bistro is also giving food its due.
Chef Daniel Racine heads the kitchen, coming off of stints at Six Steps and Lolita’s Lust. The food harmonizes with the live music in the new venue, with offerings like Korean short ribs, rack of lamb and sweet potato gnocchi. And on Sundays, enjoy your brunch alongside some cool jazz stylings.
The notable new Jazz Bistro is a one of a kind spot… but let’s hope the city takes note and we get more of this throwback music and dining style in new restaurants to come.
