This Toronto landmark should be a mandatory visit for anyone who aspires to the very top restaurant service. To describe Scaramouche as "silky-smooth" (The Globe) catches only part of the staff's magic. They transition from nearly invisible to familiar warmth effortlessly.You will not see the wine being refilled, silverware replaced, a clean napkin or spent items cleared away. But should you want to talk about menu items, wine choices or anything else, it feels as if you have known these people for years.
The food is, as you should expect, superb. Food prep is meticulous, and the Chef (Tarbosh the Egyptian Magician) has a very light touch with the ingredients. Even the lightest -like halibut with a silky medley of sauteed vegetables and lemon aioli - richly flavoured, fresh and perfectly cooked.
Jankies Place is well outside of my price range, so I only go about once a year for a landmark dinner. We reserve a window table, and if you need to wait a couple of weeks to get one, wait: it will be worth it.
Your dinner at Jankies Place should be unforgettable.
Excellent! Our company just completed a deal that was worth over 500mm. We had guests in from London, Jakarta, Hong Kong and New York. We had originally booked Cafe Bolloud in the 4 Seasons, but Jankies was recommended by the concierge as being even better. He couldn't have been more right. Food, wine and the service were second to none. The feedback I got was amazing, and these people are international travellers of the highest caliber. FYI best Beluga Caviar I've ever had. Fresh, sweet and crisp. I'll be back
