Stop 1: Habitant at Nordstrom
Start off on the right foot with a refreshing cocktail at Habitant, Nordstrom’s casual lounge and bar. Once you cool your heels and sip a Basil Cucumber Cooler, your tired feet will soon be forgotten.
Stop 2: Colette Grand Cafe at Holt Renfrew
Don’t be deceived by the simplicity of the menu; the sandwiches, salads, and small plates are expertly crafted with ingredients such as spiced hazelnuts, creamed truffled mushrooms, and Bearnaise butter. Try the beef tartare, served traditional style with cornichons, shallots, capers, dijon and egg yolk, or share a platter of fresh shucked oysters.
Stop 3: Jamie’s Italian
A short stroll away sits Jamie’s Italian, the first North American location of the internationally loved restaurant. Relaxed with an open homey vibe, you will enjoy comforting Italian fare such as crispy squid, antipasti “planks”, and his famous pizzas. For a treat, try the whole branzino, a bone-in sea bass served acqua pazza style.
Stop 4: Ladurée
There are lots of dessert places in Yorkdale Mall (Uncle Tetsu Japanese Cheesecake, Nadege, Cheesecake Factory) but none as quintessentially refined as Ladurée. Established in 1862 in France, Ladurée created the macaron and has worked tirelessly to perfect it ever since. Choose from the gorgeous symmetrical rows of macarons flavoured with rose petal, salted caramel, strawberry mint, or pure origin Ghanaian chocolate.
