Ten93 Queen West’s urban designs by Pemberton Group are as distinctive as the neighbourhood itself. Ideal for cooking and socializing at home, this condo’s sleek kitchens come with custom-style cabinetry, quartz countertops, work surface lighting, an island with quartz countertop (where applicable), and a ceramic tile backsplash.
Ten93 Queen West residents may decide to cook for themselves from time to time, but will never tire of the selection of local culturally diverse fare.
When the mood strikes to dine out and share a good meal, there are literally hundreds of options at this condominium’s doorstep. And, there’s likely something to please every palette.
For evenings out spent among friends and good eats, check out these five nearby restaurants:
Church Aperitivo Bar (1090 Queen St W) is located in a former Slavic Pentecostal Parish and features exposed brick, preserved wooden beams and modern decor. Serving up modern interpretations of traditional southern Italian fare and handcrafted cocktails, Church Aperitivo Bar is sure to become a favourite weekend hangout.
Böehmer (93 Ossington Ave) is a truly Canadian establishment, with delectable, regional cuisine. Every Tuesday, Böehmer offers half price bottles of wine and buck-a-shuck oysters. The private dining room seats up to 20 people and is available for intimate gatherings.
While technically a wine bar, Enoteca Sociale (1288 Dundas St W) dishes out exceptional Italian cuisine. One Yelp reviewer praised it as, “simply the best dish of pasta I’ve ever eaten.” With an inviting atmosphere and attentive service, you can’t go wrong.
What type of food doesn’t The Drake Hotel (1150 Queen St W) offer? Their weekend brunch serves up chicken and waffles, eggs benedict and Caesars galore. The dining rooms offers more formal fare seven nights a week and the Sky Yard rooftop patio is a great spot to enjoy a cocktail during the warmer months.
Bestellen (972 College St) boasts a meat-centric menu and a television celebrity chef. It’s best not to bring any vegetarian friends here, as you can literally order a whole roasted suckling pig to be shared amongst the table. With a trendy clientele and an ever-changing menu, this spot makes for an intriguing dining experience.
Looking to continue the night after your meal? Also in the neighbourhood from October 29 to November 2, is Sea Sick the Dora nominated play about the state of the global ocean, returning to The Theatre Centre for a limited run. Sea Sick is performed by Alanna Mitchell an award-winning Canadian journalist and author, who writes about science and social trends and specializes in investigative reporting for the New York Times and Canadian National Geographic, a contributor to CBC’s Quirks & Quarks and a columnist for Canadian Wildlife.
