Once a popular hot spot on the Toronto clubbing scene, the Ossington area is now garnering attention once again for a city revival and leading this cause is Paramour which brings a stylish and sensual flare to your meals.
Paramour is the chic dining restaurant on Ossington offering restaurant goers a chance to enjoy high-end cuisine in a laid back romantic setting.
Brother-sister team Adam Baguley and Amber Honor Elson, owners of the well-established Ossington staple LeVack Block, are bringing sexy back with their newest gastronomic adventure. “We wanted to create a space that oozed French inspired scandal and romance.”
Head Chef Laura Malin offers sophisticated dishes found on a confidently concise menu that satisfies every carnal desire. Malin’s culinary talents were honed working with Jamie Kennedy at the Royal Ontario Museum for five years. Paramour’s carefully constructed dishes showcase Malin’s skill and dedication to fresh ingredients with a French twist.
The space itself was inspired by French Victoriana exemplified in the high ceilings and warm colours. Rich coloured curtains envelope the entrance setting the stage for the lush interior. Vintage Hustler prints, deep Oak wood tables, Laura Ashley florals, tea-stained walls and glossy red bar marry together to create an old-world romantic environment that is the perfect ambiance for an anniversary dinner or a weekday indulgence.
House Manager, Adly Gawad formerly of Splendido, ensures all guests’ needs are met and expectations exceeded. Paramour delivers sophistication to the Ossington line-up and leaves patrons with a sense of warmth and whimsy.
