New upscale bistro — Entice Culinary Lounge – has opened its doors in one of the world’s trendiest neighbourhoods – Queen Street West. Bringing together an attractive and modern space with a refined experience, Entice offers a globally-inspired menu along with unique signature cocktails in a welcoming and stylish atmosphere that transitions to a social and pulsing vibe in the evening.
“Entice is a great addition to the Queen West community,” says Executive Chef Ryan Wilson-Lall. “Growing up in Toronto, I had access to a wide range of global flavours which translates into my menu, and we’re exited to be offering that experience not only for dinner – but brunch and a late night as well.”
Perfect for an intimate dinner or social brunch, the kitchen at Entice is led by Chef Ryan Wilson-Lall (Frank at the AGO and Le Germain Hotel Maple Leaf Square). The dinner menu features a selection of seasonal ingredients and in-house specialties to create an elevated globally-inspired menu within Entice’s open and modern kitchen. The menu features dishes like Carbonara Raviolo with bacon, cremini, whipped porcini egg white, crispy basil, pecorino cheese and roasted garlic mascarpone filling; Wild Boar Ragu with fresh pasta made in-house and whipped sheep ricotta; and No Bake Chocolate Biscuit Cake with toasted walnuts and raspberry sorbet – to name a few. Drawing inspiration from Toronto’s diverse culture, the dinner, brunch and late night menus at Entice offer a culinary experience suited for the trendy Queen West neighbourhood. Along with the Chef Ryan’s menu, signature hand-crafted cocktails will be offered, ideal for happy hour, date night or social outings.
Entice Culinary Lounge offers an upscale venue with contemporary design elements built-in throughout the modern space. The private dining area offers a more exclusive experience, perfect for dinners and meeting spaces, and is complete with a global wine locker.
