TORONTO — Food is always top of mind at any restaurant, but this week the management team at Toronto’s E11even restaurant is celebrating their bathroom, which has been named Canada’s Best Restroom.
“The luxury and intimate ambiance of the restaurant was infused into the washrooms where guests are able to relax and indulge in a private space with finishes such as rich marble tiling from floor to ceiling, modern sink basins, elegant mosaic tile accents and hygienic Toto Washlets,” reads a description of the winning washroom on the competition website.
E11even’s washroom, which was designed by New York’s Rockwell Group, beat an array of companies, from David Morris Fine Cars in Alberta to the Ottawa Convention Centre. “We’ve worked hard for this,” Steven Salm, the restaurant’s GM told the Toronto Star. “It feels even better knowing it was the public that made the final decision.”
The contest, which is sponsored by Cintas, had five finalists; the winner was chosen by an online public vote.
