Luma takes movie nights to a whole new level at TIFF Bell Lightbox. Located at the corner of King and John Streets, the TIFF Bell Lightbox is home to the Toronto International Film Festival, and houses five theatres, three exhibition galleries and a dramatic sixth floor event space. Paying homage to Toronto’s rich, cultural landscape, Luma’s menu showcases global and Canadian artisanal cuisine featuring the finest local and regional ingredients. Chef Michael Wilson's original, imaginative cooking is the perfect complement to Luma’s warm, inviting dining room, designed with rich woods, leather and stone and outstanding floor to ceiling views of King Street West. Luma is open for lunch Monday through Friday and dinner Monday through Saturday, and drinks and light dining in the spacious bar lounge. Enjoy innovative cocktails and a rich, diverse wine list.

"If you can find the place (I walked past the address 4 times before finding them), you will be in for a treat.
I was in Toronto on business for a few days and Luma was hands down the best meal I had while in town. The staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was excellent. The wine list was somewhat limited, but my server's recommendations proved to be excellent pairings for my dishes.

L'Apicio is located at 13 E. 1st Street (between Bowery and 2nd Avenue). The Italian-inspired restaurant gets its name from the 18th century Italian cookbook, and brings Executive Chef Gabe Thompson's cravable modern Italian food to the East Village. L'Apicio offers a deep cocktail and wine program created by Beverage Director Joe Campanale, while Executive Pastry Chef Katherine Thompson oversees the pastry program. L'Apicio is open for dinner seven days a week and brunch on the weekends, featuring lounge and bar areas and outdoor seating, in addition to the main and private dining rooms.

Da Marcella: Located in midtown, it is a Mediterranean Tavern that serves the best quality, healthy food. We have a passion for good food and excellent service, utilizing the best ingredients. <br />Most importantly, we have a love for food, service and quality.

Under the sure hand of Chef John Marsh, Greensquare Tavern is a new "farm to table" restaurant in the heart of the vibrant Flatiron District of Manhattan. The robust, affordably priced American fare is prepared from the finest seasonal, locally sustainable ingredients that come directly from local farmers and day boat fisherman. Served in a relaxed setting of casual elegance, including a skylight-lit dining room with working fireplace, diners are surrounded by revolving art exhibitions that channel the creative energy of the neighborhood. Prix fixe menus, specials and catering is offered, plus an extended Happy Hour. Wine tastings, live music and workshops are on the calendar, too, so follow us on Facebook and www.greensquaretavern.com for upcoming events.

Le Parisien is the go-to neighborhood bistrot for Murray Hill, offering classic French food like steak frites, escargots and moules marinieres, paired with a well-edited list of french wines.<br />Chef Johnathan Masse brings his expert knowledge of comfort food, having most recently served as sous chef at the Waverly Inn, and also for Chef Jonathan Waxman of Barbuto. Along with owner Christian Merand, formerly of Jean-Claude in Soho, they have created a restaurant that focuses on serving consistently great traditional food with a lively and unmistakeably French atmosphere.<br /><br />Also open daily for lunch and brunch on weekends.

Dynamic menu of original Southern Italian cuisine that dominates this welcome addition to Hell’s Kitchen. This addition is made even more welcome with the breathtaking beautiful transformation of a once historic space into a hip, fun, stop for dinner that any gourmand will savor.<br /><br /><br />Formerly, known as Film Center Cafe, Bocca Di Bacco boasts Italian cuisine from Puglia, Sicily, and Sardegna with the endless selection of wines from small vineyards in Italy. Exemplifying our policy of being “Farm to Table” operated, we use the healthiest ingredients from locally grown vendors. Located in the heart of the Theater District, this new modernized restaurant features innovative new recipes and the use of the Enomatic Wine Systems.

"One of the better spots in theater district. Very good food, excellent service. Reasonable wine list. Moderately priced. I highly recommend it, especially over the tourist traps across the street."
