When you think of “hotel restaurants,” a few things might come to mind. Continental breakfasts with stale muffins and cold packets of butter, loud children eating chicken fingers while dressed in snorkeling gear, and entrees for the adults that never seem worth the steep price tag. Ben Paris is here to break those stereotypes. This all-day restaurant on the ground floor of The State hotel serves such delicious food that you’d want to eat here even if you weren’t reluctantly sharing a deluxe queen room with your parents upstairs. Their dinner menu has everything from English pea risotto to fried chicken with sesame honey. We’d even stop by the big marble bar just for a cocktail and a plate of short rib poutine.
