Mr. Rabbit and I popped into Canoe for Monday night cocktails. We each had two cocktails, expertly prepared - a couple of sidecars (a simple drink, but you wouldn't believe how often people mess this one up), plus a Manhattan and something called a "mon cherry" from their cocktail menu. Service was friendly, attentive but relaxed (the perfect mix).
We didn't eat because that's just not why we were there, but I suppose the point of this post is that I'd forgotten what a lovely place Canoe is to tipple and watch the city. And despite it's fancy-schmancy, Bay Street rep, it's a very accesible place to hang out. A bonus - cocktails were $10-15 each, and while this may not seem a bargain to some, it is totally reasonable and competitive for Toronto, astonishingly so in such a great setting.
