It’s Cocktail Hour for Foodies at East Thirty-Six

Subtly flavoured scallop crudo goes well with your drink at East Thirty-Six

A city’s heritage district can always use a good, historically-inclined cocktail parlour. The latest such establishment to make a home in Old Town Toronto is East Thirty-Six, an intimate spot that aesthetically evokes Hollywood’s golden age while melding equal parts timeless and modern on its menu. At the bar, owner and mixologist Julien Salomone crafts boozy tipples ranging from a barrel-aged smoked boulevardier to his maple syrup-splashed rye-and-Cynar “borsalino.” Tucking in for a bite proves a worthy pastime, too, thanks to chef Brent Maxwell’s classical French–leaning small plates, including brown butter and hazelnut cauliflower, duck confit and boudin blanc with foie gras, and for dessert, lemon custard with shortbread.  —Craig Moy
