Le Notre is small but one sees the chef in the open kitchen, the menù offers excellent choices, not too many but all interesting and refined. The baguette, served warm, is outstanding and a good indication of what is to come. The wine list is...More

There's something very cool about this place. Sitting inside, you feel like you could be in Paris or New York yet there is something definitively "Toronto" about it. Maybe it's the hip Harbord Village neighbourhood. Maybe it's the welcoming tone of the staff. Maybe it's...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
