1. Leña: Toronto
Hello, drama queen! With its delicious deco bones and gorgeous flourishes, including a swooping light fixture, Toronto's DesignAgency has done a beautiful job festooning Oliver & Bonacini's Lena inside Saks Fifth Avenue. The cocktail-imbibing area of the resto, Bar Lala (seen here), also features marble and brass finishes, tiles that look centuries old (in the best way), a casual art wall and mega-high ceilings. We can eat the Argentinean fare all day in this space.
