Superstar chef Susur Lee designed the menu and still oversees the kitchen but hands over the reins to his sons Kai & Levi Bent-Lee. In this up and coming Dundas west neighborhood the boys have chosen a laid back vibe emphasis on great food and imaginative drinks. The decor also a family affair designed by the boys mother Brenda Bent and her partner Karen Gable.<br />Critics agree Susur Lee has done it again! Favorites include Tuna and Watermelon Ceviche, Chicken Dumplings, Slow Braised Five Spice Short Ribs, Kale and Tofu Salad, a decidedly Asian flare with house brewed sake. A lively environment with great service

"There is something for everyone on the menu (Pescetarians and Carnivores Unite)!
The servers knew their stuff which is important in a Susar Lee restaurant. You want to know what you are getting with all those ingredients.
The only thing stopping me from giving a full 5 stars on everything was that our main server (we had three) did not ask if we wanted a second drink."

MRKT is an eclectic restaurant serving rustic comfort food in the heart of downtown. At MRKT we pride ourselves on using fresh ingredients, naturally raised meats from local farms, and line caught fish.

"We had tix to the theatre so we were rushed for time. Our server was extremely accomodating. She even put our coffee in "to go" cups for us so we made it on time."

"Good Food & Great Service! The food is interesting and fun without being pretentious. The ambiance is elegant yet comfortable. The tables are not squeezed together so you can still have great conversation. The food is definitely center stage here.
Our server was very knowledgeable and it isn't an easy task to remember all the details and nuances of these dishes. Everyone was very attentive."

“Cibo" (pronounced CHEE-bo) means food in Italian, and that’s what this Italian Bistro is all about. We like to keep the menu simple, tasty, and focused, using fresh local ingredients. Cure our own meats, make our own cheese and hand roll our pasta. We try to make almost everything in house with a menu that changes seasonally.<br /><br />* Due to the popularity of our weekends, parties of 4 or less are requested to limit their stay to 2 hours in courtesy of reservations booked after them, thank you in advance *<br /><br />~ Cibo Bistro will be CLOSED for Summer holidays from June 28th - July 15th ~<br />
