Elegantly outfitted in black and white and accented with lush greenery, The Dempsey Cookhouse & Bar is spacious and chic, and definitely one of the prettiest spots in town — bring the girls for lunch, or file this away for an intimate date night. There are tons of delicious dishes to try here, but one of our favourites has to be chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten's signature Black Truffle and Fontina Cheese Pizza ($28). Cooked in a cherry wood oven, the pizza is smothered generously with black truffle paste from France and topped with black truffle shavings — what an indulgent treat! As for the crust, Burpple Tastemaker Jonathan Wong describes it to be "soft and fluffy, with crispy charred bits, and extremely thin; you could eat more of the pizza without being filled up". The pizza is available on their lunch, dinner as well as weekend brunch menu.
Avg Price: $50 per person
