In this age of comfort food gone awry, we sometimes forget the romance and elegance with which dinner was once served. There used to be a showmanship, a calm collection of platitudes that endowed an evening with an air of importance. It would seem as though those days have long since passed. Or have they…?
The David Duncan House is an homage to the ritual of dining. In 1865, linen merchant William Duncan commissioned the building of David Duncan House, so named for his son. In a true style of the times, the building is a totem of Gothic grandeur and opulence. The lot may have since changed hands, but its inherent spirit of hospitality and architectural excellence is as vibrant and alive inside the storied walls today as it was over a century ago.
The quietly known perfection that abounds inside David Duncan House is poised for a resurgence. Starting October 23rd and running through the 26th, experience the restaurant’s beauty as part of its 25th Anniversary celebrations.
To mark the occasion, the pinnacle of fine dining in Toronto will have featured specials on appetizers and cocktails, champagne toasts, and a chance to win a gift card to dine in aristocratic style once more. Also marking the quarter century tenure of the restaurant is the addition of the Prince George private dining room, which harkens back to the 1800s. (Note: They are currently accepting reservations for holiday and office parties in the coming season.)
Renowned for scintillating seafood, marquee meats, and vittles of vegetables, the glorious David Duncan House is celebrating 25 years of echoing 150 years of Toronto history. Are you ready to partake in the festivities…?
