Four Seasons Hotel Toronto announces the opening of its all-new patio d|azur
Toronto, Canada, 2021-Jun-15 — /Travel PR News/ — At a time when travel escapes are limited to our screens and dreams, Four Seasons Hotel Toronto invites guests to experience the South of France with the opening of d|azur, an all-new patio inspired by the romance and elegance of the French Riviera. Opening today (June 14, 2021), guests will experience fresh fare in a chic atmosphere encapsulating the glamour, warmth and splendour of the Côte d’Azur. The first of its kind in Toronto, this patio will be the destination of the season.
With a tantalising menu designed by d|bar Sous Chef Horatio Macias Leon, the d|azur culinary journey will feature light and delicious creations focusing on seafood and seasonality with distinct Mediterranean accents. Fresh oysters, caviar, ceviche, cured tuna carpaccio, burrata, grilled octopus and fresh vegetables can be expected alongside colourful compositions and expertly crafted cocktails. The dessert menu, helmed by Pastry Sous Chef Kevin Levionnois, boasts refreshing summer flavours including lemon, orange blossom, apricot and thyme. The menu will also showcase the divine Tarte Tropezienne, a specialty pastry originally created in St. Tropez.
“Our new outdoor dining destination speaks to our passion for creating thoughtful and authentic guest experiences allowing everyone who joins us a much-needed respite,” says Maxime Regad, Director of Food and Beverage.
To further transport guests, the Hotel has collaborated with local Toronto artist Jason Zante to create a custom art installation, named The Riviera, which pays tribute to the region’s signature azure waters and striking architecture. Known for his use of vibrant colour pairings, bold contrast, and ethereal landscapes, Zante’s work has been featured in Architectural Digest and has an elite fanbase. Located on the Hotel’s southwest facade, the stunning work of art will sit high above Bay Street and Yorkville Avenue for d|azur patrons and passersby to admire.
“The Riviera symbolises the many elements of the Mediterranean lifestyle and landscape through abstracted forms and contrasting colours while fusing subtle textural elements that already live within the design of the Hotel,” explains Zante. “It was my goal to offer a feeling of escapism to anyone who views the mural. A moment where their minds can drift to vacation mode where they feel most at peace.”
Alongside the opening of d|azur, Four Seasons Hotel Toronto introduces the aptly named package A d|azur Escape. Inspired by the relaxing and unique experiences of this world-famous coastline, thoughtful culinary moments and clever nods to this iconic holiday destination are embedded into every aspect of this luxurious package. After a day spent savouring the taste of the Mediterranean by way of amenities and expertly prepared meals, guests can enjoy a blissful night’s rest in the Hotel’s signature Four Seasons accommodations. Younger guests will also be treated to a special amenity inspired by beloved French artist Claude Monet. An edible artist palette with colourful icing mimicking paint will be used to decorate a tasty hand-crafted chocolate bonbon. The little artists will also be given their very own beret to wear as a further tribute to Monet. The chic, modern setting of Four Seasons Hotel Toronto and d|azur, combined with inspiration from the glamorous past of the South of France brings multi-generational enjoyment for all guests who experience A d|azur Escape.
