The menu, from chef Omar Ma, draws inspiration from Mediterranean regions and offers an eclectic selection of table snacks, single bites and shareable entrees. It's also the destination for what might be one of Toronto's most lavish cocktails.
Laborie didn’t want to compete with the swarm of high quality French restaurants in Yorkville, and sought to bring a new flavour to the neighbourhood. Bar Reyna focuses on Mediterranean fare, with cocktails at the forefront of the concept.

Laborie worked closely alongside head chef Omar Ma (formerly of Buca Yorkville) to create the vision for the menu, resulting in a set of dishes that feels like a direct passport to Greece, Spain and Turkey.
