My Favourite Toronto Patios

It’s the most wonderful time of the year.  The sun is out, my freckles are appearing again, clothes are lighter and the general mood in the air is just happier.  Summer, you are the best.  Summer also means getting out and enjoying the weather as much as possible because sadly, we know what is waiting…

Dinner at Do Not Disturb (CLOSED)

When someone tells me that I will want to “order everything on the menu”, I can’t help but get a little excited about what’s in store for dinner. Do Not Disturb is appropriately (and hilariously) located inside The Beverley Hotel at Queen and John.  I’ve been to this boutique hotel for drinks on their adorable…

Drinks at Alo Restaurant

It was a cold, rainy (maybe romantic?) and wet Thursday when I found myself in the cozy, candlelit bar of Alo.  A few good friends and I had just finished a gluttonous dinner of authentic Chinese food and we were looking for a place to indulge in a few tasty libations.  We started to make…

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 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…

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,…

Brunch or Dinner at Figo Restaurant

So I’m starting to believe that Charles Khabouth/Hanif Harji and Ink Entertainment are basically going to take over the city.  Which in all honesty I’m fine with because I don’t think I’ve ever been disappointed when eating at any of their establishments.  If you’re familiar with them, they are the masterminds behind: Patria, La Societe,…

Miss Thing’s

When I think of Hawaii I’m instantly transported to breath taking sunsets, the warm sweet breeze, swaying palm trees and a vibe of just pure unadulterated relaxation.  Paradise indeed.  Nice to know that our little city has its own taste of the tropical island in the way of Miss Thing’s Bar on Queen West West…

Old School

I am a believer in that there is no season for BBQ.  Food that is BBQ’d is good any time, all the time.  Old School is a 24 hour (yes you read that right) comfort food spot on Dundas west and I had it on my list probably since the day it opened back in…

Via Vai – CLOSED

Yes it’s been a while.  No I have no excuses.  BUT I do have some exciting new adventures I’ve been on that I am super excited to share!  So let’s rewind back to a few months ago…picture this if you might.  We’re on the cusp of summer, the weather is getting warmer every day, hemlines…
