Canoe Restaurant & Bar Restaurant Review: An evening at Canoe should start at the bar, which offers panoramic city views. Naturally, a variety of upscale bar bites complement the cocktails. The modern Yabu Pushelberg-designed space spans two levels and maximizes sight lines in all directions from its 54th-floor perch. Artist Stephen Corner crafted distinct tableware for the restaurant, including the seafood platter used to display raw bar selections. Executive chef John Horne oversees the open kitchen, which turns out multi-course tasting menus and à la carte dishes that highlight some of Canada's best products, such as B.C. salmon, Owen Sound pheasant, and northern woods mushrooms. Conclude your epicurean experience with an inventive dessert, like chocolate mousse with spruce tip ice cream and buckthorn berries. Alternatively, finish with a few Canadian cheeses. By-the-glass wine pairings are well matched to the dishes.
