My Minkoff and I checked out Pigeonhole this weekend. Just named Best New Restaurant in Canada for 2015 by Air Canada’s enRoute magazine, I had to give Justin Leboe’s new place a go. Conveniently located right next door to his other award-winning restaurant, Model Milk, his new eatery adds to his edible empire.
Verdict? Love it. Friendly door reception. Elegant decor — because ambience is always important. Amazing service from the waiter, who was quick to find me a wine by the glass that wasn’t on the list. Sharing plates I tried included a lamb tartare (generously portioned) and an unusual (and tasty) radicchio caesar salad. And I’m pretty sure it was celeb chef Justin himself who helped me with the door to the restroom hallway.
With its wine and snack bar mandate, Pigeonhole is a delicious late night stop after a show, although fyi, hungry friends, it opens at 4pm. Congrats on the award, Justin! You deserve it. PS – thanks for the matches.
