Here is a Portugal Village newcomer — equal parts chic and cozy — that seeks to join the legion Mediterranean/Middle Eastern players to which Toronto currently plays host by injecting a little imagination into convention. That means innovations like house-pressed labaneh with zatar, and arak and sour cherry gastric-smothered poutine. Flatbreads, possibly topped with figs and halloumi cheese, emerge from the stone oven centerpiece like miracles. There’s lots for vegetarians here, and folks who like their meat Halal will find that offering across the board. The 4,000 sq.-ft. space is vast, communally oriented and handsome, including a 36-foot long walnut bar.
