It can be found right at the heart of the beloved hotel and will offer breakfast, lunch, cocktail and dinner service.

Its one-of-a-kind menu will feature dishes such as Bees Wax Poached Lobster, Maitake Katsu Sando, Aged Angus Rib Eye, Ontario Lamb, Smoked Beet Tartare, and many more.

“Joni will bring a refined and distinctive approach to familiar dishes, pushing the boundaries of flavour, texture and presentation,” said Antonio Soriano, the executive chef at Joni.

As for the space, Joni’s dining room will showcase a modern, electric-inspired ambiance with a contemporary staircase connecting four floors in an open-style design, according to the venue.

Starting late this fall, traditional afternoon tea will make a return to Park Hyatt Toronto, every Saturday and Sunday in Joni.
