Panorama closes and will relaunch as The One Eighty

Panorama is no more. The 51st floor restaurant at the Manulife Centre has closed its doors as extensive renovations get underway to rebrand the space as The One Eighty, an upscale cocktail-focused eatery and event space. The makeover is at least somewhat overdue, as Panorama had become a restaurant that relied almost solely on its view to attract would-be diners and event-hosts.

The One Eighty is going for a more immersive dinning experience than the space's previous iteration. Guests will be served cocktails from bar-carts and will be treated to various table-side preparations, while the food offerings from Chef Christopher Matthews will be accessible and refined (think white pizza flatbread with prosciutto and smoked provolone).

Panorama always had a touristy vibe about it. Will this makeover change that? It's tough to say. This certainly sounds like a more contemporary concept, but the word trendy comes to mind, and that might pose challenges down the line. The One Eighty will open in mid-March.
