Meant to mimic an open market, the room is built of white concrete blocks creating an effect similar to the stucco seen throughout Greece. Mamakas is a nod to heritage, history and family memories – the daily trip to the market for ripe and fragrant tomatoes. Visiting a trusted butcher for fresh paithakia, and the local fish monger for the daily catch.
Recipes passed down through generations. Honest Greek fare with a modern twist. Designed to share. Everything just as Thanos’ family has done through the ages.
At Smoque N’ Bones, we are proud of both our home and our heritage. Drawing inspiration from the heart of America, we bring Southern Hospitality to our beloved city in a unique blend of styles from Memphis, Texas, Kansas, the Carolinas, and of course, Toronto.
Our commitment to authenticity is showcased in every aspect of the restaurant, starting with our classic, Southern BBQ style menu. Everything that leaves our kitchen is made from scratch with love. Our Southern Pride smoker was tailor-made for our intimate dining room in order to provide a distinctive and genuine flavor, aroma, color, & texture in all of our meats. Even the tables have a story – topped with reclaimed wood from an old house on Palmerston and lit with bunker and prison lights from WWII.

Our Wood-Fire Pizzas are a cross between Roma and Neapolitan styles; cooked in a wood-burning M.A.M pizza oven imported from Italy. It yields a crust that is thin but sturdy. Wood-fire capabilities are critical for our menu as the flavour imparted on the food is exceptional and unique.
Our cocktails are equally thought out as our food. Our bartenders serve up a no-nonsense cocktail program featuring fresh, seasonal ingredients that are all made in house.

- POPamOExclusive •3 reviews5.0Dined 6 days agoThis restaurant was an incredible dining experience. In particular, the service can't be beat. The entire staff here worked together like poetry in motion, everyone helping each other and ensuring diners had the best experience. The Sommelier was a kind, extremely helpful, and knowledgeable woman, and our dedicated server, Zach, was also friendly and knowledgeable. We had the Palace Bacon and Lobster Spaghetti for appetizers and both were divine. We had the peppercorn crusted filet for a main with the palace potatoes and green beans for a side. All were delicious. We have eaten at Matty's Rizzo's House of Parm, and loved it, and now had the pleasure of dining at Prime Seafood Palace and can't say enough good things about it.
