Alo arrived on the Toronto foodscape when formal restaurants with tasting menus were becoming rare. Happily, chef-owner Patrick Kriss paid no heed to trends. Diners at this daring second-floor establishment enjoy a tasting menu of classically prepared French dishes like a steelhead trout topped with crème fraîche and caviar or a rib eye steak with béarnaise sauce. If you are not in the mood for an extravagant meal, or can’t get a reservation, opt for a seat at the bar for some well-crafted cocktails and snacks.
