The top 10 new restaurant openings in Toronto for December

Restaurants that opened in Toronto this December were all about unexpected luxury. A Palm Springs lounge hidden up a set of stairs, a speakeasy champagne room under a steakhouse, a popular sausage spot in a subway station: prepare to be surprised by these new spots.

Here are my picks for the top restaurant openings in Toronto for December.
