Profile Last Updated: August 20, 2008
Located at the unlikely intersection of King and Sherbourne, Veritas has become a lifestyle force to be reckoned with. In an area newly adorned with modern condominiums jutting out of refurbished old bank buildings and warehouses, Veritas is just up the street from the Distillery Historic District, galleries, furniture shops, and internet and web technology company headquarters. Indeed, it is the newest phase in the area’s development: fine dining.
Music Production to Food
The parent company is actually in the music production business, producing sound for the television, advertising and gaming industries. Veritas is a top-notch lounge and restaurant. Rather than playing up the old wooden floors, support beams, and exposed brick in the style of most converted warehouse spaces, Veritas remembers its own roots. The folks at Veritas have decided to dress the restaurant up a bit, with black tiled floors and white wall panels.
Traditional with a Twist
Veritas features cuisine heavily indebted to French traditional cooking, modernized and spiced up with twists from the Southern Hemisphere. With two floors to choose from, the menu changes slightly depending on the atmosphere you’ve decided on. In the lounge area, the menu is smaller, featuring more manageable items like high end chicken wings. The main dining room, with its sleek wooden tables and high backed chairs, might feature items like lobster and hand made ravioli with accents of truffle and saffron. Nonetheless, the menu changes weekly.
