Sliding in perfectly amongst the upscale establishments of Yorkville, La Societe is a long-time favourite restaurant of ours, since opening in 2011.
Perfectly placed to serve shoppers of the Mink Mile's high-end boutiques, the restaurant's vibe is classy and confident, with a decor and atmosphere that belies an understated elegance. Characterized by dark leather, burgundy velvet walls, and marble floors, the ambiance was curated by Munge Leung, with impeccable attention to detail. Her inspiration? A 1920's Parisian bistro! The pièce de résistance is most certainly the stained glass ceiling in the dining room. I'm the guy who loves perching at the (gorgeous) bar, which I find more convivial, and a great spot for people-watching!
The menu - characterized as French Bistro fare - has certainly evolved over time, and only seems to be getting better; Executive Chef Ben Heaton has refined their selection and re-focused on those things they are best at, including their seafood offerings. For example, on Wednesdays, the chef special is a divine lobster dinner (poor me and my lobster allergy! boo!), while on Thursdays there's a good chance you'll find me at the bar indulging in the mouth-watering oyster special, which are just a dollar a piece, 4 to 8 pm!
This resto also does a stellar brunch... and if you frequent this blog, you know how much I love a well-done brunch!! La Societe has never disappointed in this regard - their fresh confections are always top notch! To avoid a long wait for a table - which is often a brunch-time reality in Toronto - we suggest making a reservation.
Planning an evening of conversation and cocktails with friends? I'd reccommend looking over the menu before committing, as the libations here are on the pricier side. That said, there are some notable drink specials offered on Mondays between 5 and 7pm!
131 Bloor St West.
