La Société French Bistro Grand Opening
Charles Khabouth’s Ink Entertainment makes its mark again with a crowd-pulling destination for Toronto’s socializing pooh-bah. The June grand opening of the French bistro La Société was a mere prelude to its instant success, drawing September stargazers to coalesce for TIFF-inspired dishes and celebrity dinners. “On any given night, when you go in, every seat or almost every seat is taken at dinner,” says Khabouth. La Société’s rich décor and quality imported furniture is apropos to Parisian design sensibilities, which spill throughout mahogany interiors designed by Munge Leung.
