The Ultra Re-invention

The Toronto nightclub tries something new.

Image

Beirut-born Charles Khabouth is not subtle about the newly re-invented ULTRA. The CEO of Toronto-based Ink has done it again with the recently reopened restaurant by day, and nightclub after dark.

The new ULTRA, designed by Toronto’s Munge Leung, has a dark, hellish and somewhat crazed vibe with black and red as the dominant colors, and gigantic images of imposing roosters loom over 400 plus diners or clubbers.  Photographer Stephen Green-Armytage created the threatening bird pictures. Partners Alessandro Munge and Sai Leung were also in charge of the award-winning design of the original ULTRA five years ago.

Khabouth’s Ink is engaged in a range of prominent hospitality venues, including the Pantages Suites Hotel & Spa in Toronto (club) and The Beatles Revolution Lounge in the Mirage in Las Vegas.

NYOOD Restaurant Review *****

1096 Queen Street West

Don’t let the exterior of swank black, with the absence of a sign fool you into thinking Nyood (pronounced nude) is too ritzy for you. Dress in your casual best and you will have no trouble gaining entry…but make reservations for the best tables by the window.

Actually there is no bad seating in this beautifully decorated restaurant. The decor is a combination of old meets new, a Parisian feel with a Grecian ceiling (or is it Roman?) meets nouveau modernism touches of white bookshelves, industrial light fixtures and concrete tables. The space is 2000 square feet, and feels spacious yet cozy with a subtle warmth. The elegant, elongated bar meets a tastefully decorated open concept kitchen.

The delicious food comes as tapas. I visited twice in one week!  If you like to share your food, then this is the place to come. An extremely delicious lychee shrimp cerviche was my favorite dish. But then my mates and I also gobbled down the mushroom and shrimp flatbread and whole snapper filleted. Dessert was to die for…the strawberry creme brulee, espresso brownie, and the blueberry ice cream (tasted like fried ice cream) were stand outs.

Owned by Hanif Harji, who also owns the trendy Blowfish and Kultura eating spots, and managed by the enthusiastic “Sacha”.

Nyood is definitely a place where you take your time and graze. It is the hottest restaurant in Toronto right now, so go! Take about $200.00 for a couple including a glass of wine, taxes and tip.

W4W TorontoWe are there.
