Torontonians love their patios. I know this because I have worked on one of the busiest patios in the city and have witnessed first hand the attraction to spending summer days on a patio sipping on suds and sangria.
There are so many patios to choose from, especially in the financial district. Yesterday I finally had my first patio lunch of the season and newly opened MuvBox.
The MuvBox is the recent addition to the Market Fresh brand of Marche, located in the beautiful sunny plaza of Brookfield Place.
The MuvBox patio has a unique welcoming ambiance with the perfect mix of sun and shade. The massive white canvas umbrellas block just enough sunlight so you don’t overheat. Very important when you are in a suit and have to be fresh for your 2:00 meeting.
I tried their white wine spritzer, which was sooooo good. It is made with crisp white wine, campari, soda and friut. I could have easily had anther one or two, but it was only lunch and I had to go back to work.
One of my favourite things about the MuvBox is the outdoor kitchen. I have never been to a patio where they have turned an old freight container into a working kitchen that makes everything fresh right in front of you. Very Marche.
This is what I ordered. I know many of you that know me personally are shocked. I never order burgers and rarely eat them. But it was highly recomended that I try the AAA prime burger. GREAT reccomendation, this burger was AMAZING complete with thin crispy onion rings on top. It really made the whole experience feel like you were at a BBQ with good friends.
What completed the whole exxperience, putting MuvBox high on my list of downtown Toronto patio favourites was the phenomenal staff. Not only do they all have a wicked sense of style, they are friendly, fun and really good at their jobs. I didn’t have to wait more than two minutes for anything. Haley, our server made the whole experience memorable and had quite possibly the most awesome black dress on I have seen in a while.
The MuvBox is a great patio for lunch time meetings or lunch with your co-workers. I highly recommend it and will be going back soon to check out happy hour.
Thanks MuvBox for the fantastic experience!
A note to my girls: we need to do happy hour drinks here early next week. Girls night!!
