Final Dinner Service - Saturday, November 10

Dear Friends,

After 4 amazing years, Boralia will be serving up our historically-inspired Canadian dishes for the very last time on Saturday, November 10. It is not a decision we arrived at easily, but with a new addition to our little family on the way and increasing rent, we feel that now is the best time to end this particular chapter. We are honoured to have been a part of the Toronto and Canadian food scene for the past several years, and are so grateful for your support. Who knew so many people would want to eat pigeon pie and sea snail on a consistent basis?!

We invite you to join us over the next 3 weeks for a last hurrah and a final fix of our pine-smoked mussels. It’ll be a chance for us to say thank you and farewell. Reservations available here through our website or by phone at (647) 351-5100. Hope to see you in the next few weeks.

Boralia: A history lesson in Canadiana 
that tastes unforgettably good


"The most positive menu-writing innovation I’ve seen in this city appeared last fall at Boralia, a polished and groundbreaking new restaurant on lower Ossington Avenue. Boralia’s aim is to celebrate the historical foods of Canada – but not just the usual poutines and butter tarts."

"They've imbued their welcoming Ossington Avenue room not just with first-rate cooking and the subtle scent of pine smoke, but also with uncommon polish and grace."

Boralia a delicious lesson in Canadian history

Amy Pataki, The Toronto Star >

"Think Canadian cuisine is all maple syrup and poutine? Think again. Thanks to the new Boralia on Ossington Ave., my edible Canada now includes Chinese-style deviled eggs, Acadian beignets and a seemingly simple but utterly captivating 17th-century dish involving mussels, butter and pine needles. "

"The highlight one night was a casserole of dense salt cod quenelles, their marine flavour ratcheted up by a bisque-like velouté and tender lobes of lobster. A history lesson has never left me so happy."
