Parts & Labour: drinking, eating, and dancing


One of Toronto's hottest but casual nightspots begins with the hearty, yet precise cuisine of Matthew James Matheson.

Though the facade of Parts & Labour can be deceiving, once inside, there is no possible doubt. It is indeed one of the nightlife musts of Toronto, both an upscale restaurant and late-night cocktail bar.

It should be said that after tasting the subtle and rich menu of Chef Matthew James Matheson, customers are tempted to stay. Try the steak tartar served with black garlic foam and ultra thin chips, or the cheeseburger with Jack Cheese, bacon, pickles, and onion jam. The light-colored wood communal tables create a social atmosphere that is unpretentious and conducive to meeting people.

After dinner, go down one floor to get to The Shop, Parts & Labour's disco, and dance the night away in the company of trendy Torontonians.
