7 Elm, at Yonge, 416-597- 0335, bar­be­ri­


Any­one who’s seen the ter­rific BBC biopic Bur­ton & Tay­lor with He­lena Bon­ham Carter and Do­minic West will ap­pre­ci­ate this Mad Men­era steak house. Liz ’n’ Dick cer­tainly did – they got en­gaged here! A ver­i­ta­ble who’s who of celebs have dined here, in­clud­ing such iconic names as – deep breath – Michael Caine, Jack Lem­mon, Don Rick­les, Rose­mary Clooney, Richard Cham­ber­lain, Sharon Stone, Art Lin­klet­ter, Patty Duke, Yvonne DeCarlo, Pa­trick Mac­nee, Rita Moreno, Arnold Palmer, Eartha Kitt, Min­nesota Fats, Rod­ney Danger­field and Lib­er­ace. Now that Bistro 990’s been bull­dozed for a condo de­vel­op­ment, Bar­be­rian’s keeps the old­school show­biz vibe alive. Mon­day to Fri­day noon to 2:30 pm, din­ner 5 pm to mid­night, Satur­day and Sun­day 4:30 pm to mid­night. Reser­va­tions ac­cepted. Li­censed. Ac­cess: bar­rier-free.
