When Carlo Catallo and chef Victor Barry took over downtown's Splendido in 2009, they lightened the atmosphere with a pale-blue walls, pendant lights, polished hardwood floors, contemporary art, and a wall lined with colorful preserves. And while a cursory knowledge of French is helpful when it comes to correctly pronouncing foie gras parfait, rabbit pappardelle, and charcuterie, diners are drawn to Barry's seasonal, locally-sourced inspirations—for example, Hidden Bench Vineyard egg yolk ravioli prepared with spinach, ricotta, and black Burgundy trouffles. Splendido's wine cellar, which emphasizes Ontario wineries, doubles as the private dining room.
