When Carlo Catallo and chef Victor Barry took over downtown's Splendido in 2009, they lightened the atmosphere with a pale-blue walls, pendant lights, polished hardwood floors, contemporary art, and a wall lined with colorful preserves. And while a cursory knowledge of French is helpful when it comes to correctly pronouncing foie gras parfait, rabbit pappardelle, and charcuterie, diners are drawn to Barry's seasonal, locally-sourced inspirations—for example, Hidden Bench Vineyard egg yolk ravioli prepared with spinach, ricotta, and black Burgundy trouffles. Splendido's wine cellar, which emphasizes Ontario wineries, doubles as the private dining room.

Insider Tip:

Don't pass on the bread brasket, as the crusty ryes and foccaia are made each day using a steam-injected oven.
