Toronto – YYZ, YTZ
Chef Victor Barry shuttered his fine-dining restaurant Splendido to relaunch as a family-friendly haven of Italian comfort food. Plunge a fork into overstuffed ravioli in brown butter to release its truer sauce, a gooey egg yolk and bright green spinach-ricotta purée; pair that with falanghina, the refreshing white grape from Campania. A white-sauce pizza is topped with lemon and bitter greens, and the pink-and-gold decor includes 20 abstract canvases painted by Barry’s toddler daughter.
