924 Queen West, Toronto, Ontario
The second venture from Team Barchef (Frankie Solarik and Brent VanderVeen) is a smoking-jacketed throwback worlds away from its mother ship’s hyper-modernist sensibilities. Housed in the former Ursa at Queen and Shaw, Furlough is dim, polished and classically inclined. Just the spot for an aperitif – try the Lee-Metford Mark II (gin, Campari, akvavit, rosemary lavender bitters and rosewater garnished with cucumber, salt and pepper, $14) or a whiskey-forward nightcap.
