TORONTO—Under the guidance of Oliver & Bonacini Restaurants and
INK Entertainment, Trump Toronto announced the opening of a redesigned bar and
restaurant in early August.

The pair took over operations of the Trump International Hotel &
Tower’s foodservice and entertainment late last year.

According to the Toronto Star,
Stock restaurant will close Aug. 20 for a quick renovation, reopening Aug. 28
as high-end supper club America.

With the help of designers II by IV Design, the 31st
story restaurant will be transformed into a 110-seat “contemporary dining
establishment.”

America restaurant’s culinary team consists of chef de cuisine Bill
Osborne, Trump Toronto executive chef Markus Bestig and O&B corporate
executive chef Anthony Walsh.

“Elevated, lavish takes on classic regional American fare is what
America is about,” O&B co-founder and partner chef Michael Bonacini said in
a release. “Chef Anthony Walsh is rogue and unapologetic in his cooking—and
we're excited about presenting American fare that truly represents the
confidence and boldness of its namesake, but in a lux and indulgent way. Like
eating your way across Route 66 by way of private jet.”

Thursday through Saturday evenings, the America will transform into
an intimate, late-night venue offering a blend of entertainment and fine dining
with a blend of late night cocktails, small plate dishes and live music.

The Calvin bar—a 2,000-square-foot lounge wrapping around the main
floor lobby and providing entry from a new Bay Street entrance—serves up
classic drink and signatures. 

“AMERICA and THE CALVIN bar are testaments to the sophistication and
buttoned-down business chic that the hotel currently offers,” Ink Entertainment
chief executive officer Charles Khabouth said in a release.

Trump Toronto will officially debut the two establishments this
fall.
