Where to Take Your Clients: Buca Yorkville

Located by the Four Seasons Hotel and Residences in Yorkville, this third outpost from King Street Food provides everything you could ask for from a 5 star meal. Inspired by Italian tradition and driven by Canadian ingredients, the Buca Osteria & Bar in Yorkville is a premium location to take your clients for a delectable work lunch.

The modern space features brick and cement walls, just under 100 dining seats and a domineering sculptural chandelier upon entering. An open-concept kitchen is the central feature of the interior of the restaurant with 6 seats right at the rail facing all the action. The osteria is slightly more seafood focused than it’s sister locations. The Yorkville location highlights a selection of perfectly garnished mouthwatering  salumi di mare. Of course, the chain’s remarkable house-made pastas and pizzas that put them on the map are also available.

Chef Director Rob Gentile and Chef de Cuisine Ryan Campbell create a menu that is printed daily with the freshest local ingredients available with some permanent day-to-day dishes. Some of the menu’s highlights include squid ink dumplings, duck yolk and black truffle pizza and the braised octopus.Hours are wide-ranging at Buca with guests able to arrive for early in the day for espressos and pastries and return late evening for their critically acclaimed seafood and renowned  Italian cuisine selections with the warmth of friends and family.
