Here’s a perfect spot to gather with friends, order “tapas mania” (small plates on chef’s whim from C$15–C$60 per person), and choose a bottle or two from Le Cercle’s carefully selected wines. Sommelier and co-owner Fréderic Gauthier really knows his stuff. Some tapas plates are built around sturgeon or salmon, smoked in-house, or incorporate wine into flavorful sauces. Many come with a side of pickled vegetables or other creative condiments. At brunch on the weekends, le pain doré (French toast) is topped with a mouth-watering combo of rhubarb compote, ricotta, pecans, and maple syrup. On Saturdays, kids under 12 eat free (from a designated menu) when accompanied by an adult. The bar is open late and there’s a plethora of films and other live entertainment held in the adjacent space.
