This June, you have not one, but two swanky eatery openings to look forward to.
The Fairmont Royal York, one of Toronto’s most distinguished places to stay for a few hours or a few nights, has announced the opening of Clockwork and Reign on June 11.
The openings align with the date of the hotel’s 90th anniversary.
“Fairmont Royal York has always been home to notable culinary and cocktail offerings throughout our long history. We are excited to introduce two new food and beverage venues which usher in a new era of dining at our hotel, while remaining true to our esteemed past,” said Edwin Frizzell, Regional Vice President and General Manager of the Fairmont Royal York, in a release.
When you step into the hotel’s newly transformed lobby, you’ll be introduced to Clockwork Champagne & Cocktails with the new centrepiece of the lobby space: a classic clock tower.
Clockwork is geared to serve as a classic lounge, offering an elegant champagne and cocktail experience. Offering a spacious layout with an exclusive setting, the area caters to more intimate groups—perfect for after-work drinks or a cozy date.
While visiting, you’ll be able to enjoy bubbles and a wide array of international wines, specially crafted cocktails and mouthwatering bites. Anticipate classic cocktail recipes infused with modern flavours.
And then, there’s Reign.
“Reign pays tribute to our royal roots in its namesake and design, and is set to elevate our dining experience through a Canadian-inspired brasserie with a modern take on French traditional cuisine,” Frizzell said.
Away from the grand lobby space, you’ll find the new concept that’s home to a restaurant, bar and bakery. Offering three unique culinary experiences, the space blends together daily must-haves and classic culinary techniques with modern food trends.
Look forward to a farm-to-table dining experience featuring local ingredients and focusing on sustainability. The menu will offer everything from lobster and steak to specialty french fries and Newfoundland cod.
In terms of design and vibe, you can anticipate a custom mural depicting traditional English garden scenery, a cozy fireplace, and an intimate bar with a grand piano.
But amid all this newness, don’t fear – you’ll still have all your old favourites. The hotel will continue to welcome visitors at Piper’s Pub, Benihana Japanese Steakhouse and Lounge, and Library Bar, where you can treat yourself to afternoon tea.
Get ready to indulge, regally.
