Nota Bene on Queen St. West: NOW CLOSED

UPDATE: Nota Bene closed in December 2018 after ten years in Toronto.

Some chefs may phone in their Summer/Winterlicious menus, but not Nota Bene’s David Lee. The 2013 Summerlicious lunch was excellent. This wild salmon sashimi starter had delicious bursts of chili, apple and lemon grass, and was plated beautifully.

The butter-milk fried chicken “club” was topped with maple bacon, arugula and lemon aioli. The bun was so light and the fries were perfect.

The strawberry sorbet with rhubarb compote such a refreshing way to finish lunch, and the sugar cookie on the side was a lovely sweet touch.

It’s no surprise Nota Bene has received so many accolades, including being named Canada’s best new restaurant by Toronto Life and Air Canada’s En Route magazine. Not only is the food great, but its location on Queen West just steps from Toronto’s theatre and business district makes for a hip and buzzy atmosphere. 180 Queen Street West, Toronto.
