The Best Of California

Meets Toronto, Ontario

Spring, 2024

California is a land of endless possibilities, where natural beauty and diversity intersect to create an endlessly vibrant atmosphere. From towering redwoods to sun-kissed beaches, California is home to some of the world's most talented chefs and artists. 


We draw inspiration from the Golden State's bountiful, lush topography. As one of our favorite places on Planet Earth, we're proud to showcase The Best Of California for our guests. 


Join us in Toronto for The Best Of California, as we explore enchanting landscapes, taste exquisite flavors, while celebrating world-class artistry and culinary innovation.

For the first time, you can experience a Three Michelin Star Experience, in Toronto.
