According to the dining philosophy at Lee, sitting down to a meal no longer means gorging on a heaping plate of meat, starch, and vegetables. Instead patrons of this trendy “it” spot are invited to embark on a tapas tasting journey. The atmosphere at Lee is warm and inviting. Passersbys can’t help but pop in off the street to check out the pink, Lucite tables lit by candlelight and silk-screened walls that give this place its funky appeal.
Gourmet Food For The Common Folk
Lee Restaurant and its next-door neighbour, the uber-chic Susur, are the creations of world famous Toronto chef Susur Lee. But while Susur is a restaurant many common folk will never see the inside of, Lee is meant to be an accessible, somewhat affordable, neighbourhood meeting place. Guests can stop in for lunch or dinner and choose from a wide range of tapas prepared with an international flair. Items such as jerk calamari with chipotle mayo, caramelized black cod with Cantonese preserves, and duck confit with dried pineapple, spiced nuts and goat cheese are featured. Indeed, Lee allows diners to take part in a culinary trip around the world each time they visit this King Street hotspot.
Pass Me the Tapas
Everything about Lee encourages diners to redefine the way they experience mealtime. Instead of having to settle for just one dish, those who dine at Lee might end up sampling up to 20 different menu items. It may be hard for some to get used to sharing at first but, as they say, variety is the spice of life… And if you can’t accept that just order seconds.
