Food – Drake One Fifty in Toronto
For Sunday brunches and good parties we already had the Drake Hotel on Queen Street West. Shop lovers could find the coolest curiosities in the Drake General Stores. You could say that “the Drake” is a well-known concept in the city.
And now we have Drake One Fifty, the new gem in the financial district. A very welcome new hotspot in the area, we could use some “Drake love” in between the skyscrapers of Toronto. The fun thing about this concept in the middle of all the big offices is that it appeals to a mixture of people. From suits to hipsters; and everything in between.
Drake One Fifty stands for food, drink and art. Be welcomed by the orange garden gnomes and enjoy great food surrounded by an eclectic and colorful designed interior. An eye catcher is the big marble bar; hard to miss when you enter the place. Personally I’m in love with the (apparently handmade!) Moroccan tiles. Take a seat in one of the leather booths or comfortable modern chairs, and do what you’re here for: eat & drink.
My favorites on the menu
It doesn’t matter if you’re coming for lunch, dinner, dessert or just some snacks after work. If you’re lucky it’s Monday and that means sushi time or something else on the menu that makes you happy.
One of their signature dishes and my personal favorite is the tartare.
The French would be envious! Another great choice is one of the signature seafood dishes. Most Torontonians love seafood and I have to say they’re good at it. A plate of oysters is often one of the menu’s favorites.
Last but not least: time for some sweet dessert! Since I’m a big fan of desserts, I wanted to try everything and lucky me, that’s possible. Lemon tart, olive oil cake, mint ice cream and brownies: I want it all and I got it all! Yummy!
