On Our Radar: INK Entertainment and Icon Legacy are Opening Up a Steakhouse in Toronto

In a city of countless burger and Mexican places, there will soon be a new steakhouse in town – and one with the Ink Entertainment stamp of approval. 

We’ll give you a moment to digest that. 

The latest creation by restaurateurs Hanif Harji, Charles Khabouth, and Tim Foley – along with Chef/Partner Stuart Cameron – will once again take the city’s culinary landscape up a notch when NAO Steakhouse opens its doors on November 18th. 

And judging from this culinary team’s track record we suspect we have a lot to look forward to. After all, they’re behind some of our favourite Toronto hotspots: Weslodge, Patria, and Byblos

Offering a new reason to hit Yorkville (Yorkville at Avenue Road, to be exact), the modern steakhouse will feature what is promised to be a truly innovative menu, complete with an extensive selection of premium cuts of meat, like Wagyu and grass-fed, prime dry-aged sourced from Japan, the USA, and Australia.

The menu will explore the exotic flavours of the Asian-Pacific variety, unearthing special ingredients, a unique salting program, and premium cuts imported exclusively for NAO. 

If a nice cut seems a tad ambitious before a night on the town the restaurant will also be offering lighter fare as well.

But we all know NAO is about giving steak your own stamp of approval
