Bar Isabel
Spanish
Toronto, Little Italy (College Street)
797 College Street

This exciting College Street spot, which opened in March, is a partnership between Grant van Gameren, the founding chef and former co-owner of The Black Hoof, and Max Rimaldi, the restaurateur behind Enoteca Sociale and Pizzeria Libretto.

Prior to opening Bar Isabel, Grant van Gameren traveled for two months in Europe, including stops in Copenhagen, Bologna (Italy), and San Sebastian (Spain), and has brought back what he saw in both the kitchens of Europe as well as the restaurant culture. The menu is predominantly Spanish, and features small plates meant for sharing. Each dish is expertly executed and rarely falls short. The staff are well-informed and describe each dish in meticulous detail.

There is an incredible cocktail list -- including an interesting beer selection -- and an eclectic wine list put together with thoughtful consideration to the food menu by Alessandro Pietropaolo. Alessandro also works the floor and will offer spot-on recommendations whether it's beer, a cocktail, or a glass of wine.

Bar Isabel is open daily from 6pm-2am, and reservations are recommended.
