Cluny, Bistro and Boulangerie
Modern French Cuisine
One of my favourite places in Toronto that elicits so much joy in me is definitely the Distillery District. There is something about how much history it has with the city, its cobbled stone streets, and little shops that make me feel like I’ve been transported in time to a different era. Whether its because of the Christmas Market which takes place there every year, or the food, or the one-of-a-kind pieces you can only discover in the boutiques that lines the district’s corridors – or simply because of the wonderful memories I’ve shared with my love here – the Distillery has become something of a favourite spot in the city for me.
And nestled in the district you will also find Cluny, Bistro and Boulangerie, a beautiful French restaurant that specializes in in-house baked bread, Parisian butter and truffles, and all round delicious contemporary French cuisine. At Cluny, Guelph born Chef Paul Benallick gives us French dining born from tradition, with fares like French onion soup, frog legs, and steak frites, but with an unpretentious modern flare.
