Toronto's 'Figures' Serves Up Comic Book-Inspired Fare

Toronto recently became home to a new comic book-inspired restaurant called 'Figures.' While themed restaurants can sometimes come off as kitschy or unrefined, this hip Yorkville spot is anything but.

Characterized by dark decor and gourmet plates, Figures add a high-end twist to the world of themed dining. The restaurant is "a speakeasy resto-lounge concept" created by restaurateurs Nader Marzouk and Patrick Marzouk as a way to combine their love of comics and hospitality. The interior of the restaurant is filled with decoupage-style comics, graffiti and nostalgia-inducing collectibles, while the menu features subtle nods to the world of superheros and villains. For instance, there is a cocktail that boasts an almond orgeat stencil of a Stormtrooper and a Mexican Chocolate dessert that is filled with a trio of robot truffles.
