Urban Oasis

October 3, 2011

Its been a season of sceney openingsFrank, Loire, Osteria, Black Hoof,
and School, to name a few. And if were naming names, lets not forget the
beautiful Oasi.

Set in the space that Mildred Pearce once occupied, the restaurants
soaring ceilings, striking chandeliers, plastered pillars and slick
polished concrete floors create an air of grace, grandeur and elegance.

Start with a drink at the cocktail bar (discreetly hidden at the back of
the restaurant) before melting into dinner in one of the cozy banquettes.

We began with a selection of tasty marinated sardines ($10) followed by
the nights feature, a crispy, pan-roasted salmon served on a bed of
quinoa ($34).

The wine list, created by master sommelier John Szabo (the only Canadian
to earn this title), is massive and spectacular; we sipped a delightful
Fattoria San Quintino Chianti ($45).

Our only peeve: The flatware, though fancy, is ergonomically challenging!

Oasi, 99 Sudbury St., Toronto, 416-849-6567,
