Q What is it like?

The corner of Queen and Spadina was never the most posh or even interesting address in Toronto, so when chef Patrick Kriss announced he would open a restaurant on the third floor of a historic Victorian building right there, local foodies were skeptical. Once Alo opened in 2015 with high-concept, French-inflected cuisine, it soon topped critics' choice lists around the world and Kriss' naysayers became believers. The space, which is elegant without feeling stuffy, is flooded with natural light, and there's ample room to move about.

Q What's the crowd like?

Any crowd that commits to a five-course tasting menu that starts at $90 per person is bound to be serious about food.
