While an overnight stay might seem overindulgent, Constantine is giving a good reason for locals to check out Toronto’s newest boutique hotel.
Located inside the newly opened Anndore House the restaurant draws inspiration from Italy to the Middle East. It’s the latest kitchen helmed by Chef Craig Harding of acclaimed Toronto restaurants Campagnolo and La Palma.
Like all good hotel restaurants, the offerings here span from morning to night. The breakfast menu, for instance, features solid starters like brûléed grapefruit, avocado toast, and buttermilk ricotta pancakes.
Meanwhile, the offerings at brunch are even more decadent and include selections such as duck confit hash, breakfast pizza, and Cacio e Pepe… all of which can be enjoyed in the cozy space outfitted with plush banquettes, warm textiles, and a fireplace.
From the bar, an expansive wine list offers selections by the glass and bottle for any and every occasion while the line-up of cocktails includes signature drinks like the Lavandula, Lillet Blanc, cherry gin, lavender, and lemon finished with a splash of Parés Baltà Cava for effervescence.
At lunch, the menu is pared down offering standouts like burrata paired with fresh peas, asparagus, fava, mint pesto, and almonds, along with Cacio e Pepe-inspired pizza and saffron cavatelli with braised beef rib.
The dinner menu expands on the midday offerings and is especially conducive to family-style dining.
Entrust Chef to curate a sharable menu for $65 per guest or opt for small plates to start followed by a la carte orders of pizza, pasta, grains, and roasted or grilled meats supplemented by an impressive array of vegetable dishes and stunning desserts.
