First NBA Courtside Restaurant To Open Downtown Toronto

The first NBA Courtside Restaurant is opening within walking distance from the Scotiabank Arena, home of the Raptors, this spring, Retail Insider reports!

It will be a premium, sports-inspired dining experience celebrating the National Basketball Association through custom art and decor, modern food and drinks, a retail space, as well as outdoor and private dining! 

The restaurant will be operated by Urban Dining Group, and chef Erica Karbenlik, who has won Top Chef and Chopped Canada, will be the NBA Courtside’s Restaurant Culinary Ambassador and will oversee the menu. 

NBA Courtside Restaurant will showcase the stages of an NBA player’s journey as well as historical moments from NBA history through art and decor.

Retail Insider reports that Leah MacNab, NBA Senior Vice President, said in a statement; “There’s no better location for the first NBA Courtside Restaurant than Canada, where basketball has a rich history and tradition… We can’t wait to welcome fans and guests from around the world to this incredible venue, where they can celebrate their shared love of the game in a unique way through a delicious meal and welcoming atmosphere.”

The menu is said to feature international cuisine that will include nods to the NBA and basketball in it. For example, a 23-ounce pint glass referencing Michael Jordan’s number.
