Believing that less is more; simplicity attains perfection, Scaramouche Restaurant has been serving fine classic continental French cuisine since 1981. Obviously this approach has not hindered them in any way, as they are consistently referred to as one of the city’s top restaurants.
Dine With the City
Divided into two separate sections, Scaramouche Restaurant features the traditional dining experience as well as a grill, both of which have garnered their own fans over the years. With its panoramic view of the Toronto skyline, Scaramouche’s elegant dining room features a minimalist style boasting clean lines and open space so that the “natural” beauty beyond the windows is the only highlight. Using seasonal ingredients, Scaramouche continually updates its menu to feature multiple options revolving around seafood, fresh greens, pastas and grill items.
The restaurant is designed with a more casual approach in mind – the grill works around an “uptown” atmosphere. It has a slightly quicker pace and a pared-down menu fixating on a dozen of the same grill, seafood and pasta dishes available in the dining room. Between the two, it is no wonder that Scaramouche has become a quite popular forum for such diverse special events as birthday celebrations, romantic evenings, business meetings and more. Of course, a seemingly endless supply of excellent wines will compliment any dining experience.
The wine, however, won’t complete the evening. This is where Scaramouche’s infamous desserts take over. Putting elegant twists on traditional favourites, Scaramouche has succeeded in reinventing a number of meal-cappers. Their white chocolate-wrapped coconut cream pie is of particular note, having known to make more than one patron swoon. Similarly, a host of desserts are similarly treated, adding decadence to simplicity in their lemon tarts, crème brûlée and flourless chocolate cakes.
