Beautiful Toronto Restaurants
Take a tour of Figo and Kōst's beauty!
Nestled between the Entertainment and Fashion Districts in downtown Toronto, Figo is a bright, modern, 2,100-square-foot Italian restaurant with a 1,100-square-foot patio.
Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the interior with natural light, but a custom-designed floral print was applied to the glass to soften the light coming in. A large fresco-like floral ceiling application repeats the motif and adds a romantic touch.
Kōst, which opened in September 2017, is a massive, 7,728-square-foot, 200-seat rooftop restaurant on the 44th floor of Bisha Hotel. The design team — Studio Munge partnered with Wallman Architects, Scope Interior Design, and FF&E Design and Procurement — worked to create an energetic design for the party-centric space. The restaurant has a beach house aesthetic and menu inspired by the Baja Peninsula.
Warm wood adorns the walls and adds texture to the ceiling via custom oak trellises. The bar is topped and sided with panels of marble in varying shades, from tropical peach to ivory and seafoam green. Rose-tinted glass shelves float over the bar and hold liquor and glassware.
The indoor dining area is surrounded by a 92-foot operable glass wall system that erases the line between the inside and the 4,257-square-foot terrace, which includes a rooftop pool with the hotel logo on its floor.
