from one luxury brand to the next, taking advantage of

Description
We are El Tenedor, a boutique restaurant conveniently located on Yonge Street, just a block south from Rosedale subway station and at 10 minutes walking distance from Yorkville and Summerhill We are a quiet and romantic dinner destination offering a casual fine dining experience through a carefully designed tasting menu using only local and seasonal ingredients; as well as a Pintxos and Tapas menu served before the first dinner service. We aspire to be creative and inventive with our food and to provide you with a unique visit, reminiscence of the modern Northern Spanish Cuisine (Basque, Catalan, Southern french) and the new Latin American gastronomy. Our wine list is put together thinking of the best match for our dishes of the month.
