You’ll have to take the elevator up to the 54th floor of the Toronto Dominion Bank tower to reach Canoe, but the food and CN Tower views live up to the journey. When this restaurant first opened in the 1990s, they were one of the first places to really try and define contemporary Canadian cuisine. And while Canadians are still figuring out their culinary identity, dishes like the Ontario lake trout bathed in champagne sauce and aged ribeye with smoked bacon make the absolute most of local ingredients. The chefs are also super accommodating and can prepare pretty much anything (just don’t ask for poutine) to suit your needs, whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, or halal.
