Installed on the mezzanine level of First Canadian Place, Canada's tallest building, Vertical—with its clean-lined geometry, sleek sandstone-topped bar, and outdoor patio— doesn't exactly call up traditional visions of Italy. Yet, when Giacomo Pasquini began helming the kitchen in 2010, he wasted little time establishing Vertical as one of the Financial District's top Italian restaurants. The kitchen makes pasta from scratch daily, while Pasquini's fresh seasonal dishes rely heavily on local ingredients like farm-fed Ontario beef, and his seafood selections have earned the Ocean Wise seal of approval for sustainable sourcing.
