Dinner at Amsterdam Brewhouse

It’s officially August which means that our Canadian Summer is slowly coming to an end.  My fingers are crossed on the warm weather carrying over in September since itI feel like I haven’t really had a chance to ENJOY the summer.  So in continuing my Patio Pursuits series I’ve been trying to suggest places with…

Drinks at The Spoke Club

This one will be a quick one in an effort to keep up with my Patio series.  You can see I’m serious about this one 🙂  I don’t head up to the Spoke Club very often but every now and then one of my friends with a membership takes me there for some bevvies.  Have…

Dinner at Sidecar Restaurant

Patio, wine, steak.  Pretty much sums up my recipe for the perfect summer.  Sidecar is one of my staples in the sense that I probably eat here at least once a month.  Not just out of convenience since its down the street from my office but they make a pretty kick ass steak frites.  They…

Dinner at The Captain’s Boil

“If it’s from the sea, it’s not for me” is a statement one of my favorite people at work uses quite often when we refer to any meal that includes seafood.  Although I don’t necessarily prescribe to that exact feeling, I also can’t say that I overly LOVE seafood.  I probably have fish 1-2 times…

Drinks at The Walton

Sigh, that inevitable smell of summer.  A mix of sunscreen, ice cream and sweat all rolled into one.  Which also means its time for patios to dust off their benches and tables and get ready for the swing of Torontonians looking to get day drunk while enjoying the outdoors. This week has been surprisingly above…

Brunch at Marben Restaurant

Oh the days of Friday nights at Marben.  No dress code, no cover and the best music a 90’s hip-hop and R&B loving girl could ask for.  Those days are gone but the lovely Marben is luckily still around.  Since those days (almost 4 years ago now), Marben has undergone a few re-inventions.  Apparently it…

Dinner at Odd Seoul

One of my best friends was visiting from the UK (she of course has lived in Toronto) but I got to take her around the city so she could see it through my eyes.  It was an unnecessarily cold and rainy Monday in March but we made the most of it with a boozy lunch,…

Dinner at Cafeteria (NOW CLOSED)

Dinner Club Round 2!  Our adventure this time brings us to Cafeteria, the newest addition to the Playa Cabana family.  I guess in comparison to other cuisines I’m on the fence about Mexican food.  It has never over delighted me but at the same time, who can deny the satisfaction after biting into a perfectly…

Dinner at Electric Mud BBQ

Sigh.  BBQ.  Brings to mind the warm summer breeze, the smell of freshly cut grass and sitting outside on the patio enjoying good times with good friends.  Personally I don’t believe there is a particular season for BBQ but you can’t deny that summer is not the same without it. On what was probably one…

Dinner at Saku Sushi

Sushi is probably something that I need at least once a week.  I love it.  Its quick, inexpensive, I never feel ridiculously full and I get my intake of fish which is not always my go to meal choice.  I finally got a chance to go to the newly opened Saku Sushi on Queen Street…
