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…

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 Rickshaw Bar

My favourite thing about my job is the people that I have had the joy to cross paths with.  Many of them are not just my co-workers but people that I genuinely enjoy spending time with outside of our office.  They also love food.  So, it was the perfect time to resurrect a dinner club…

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,…

Loka

I found myself at Loka on this rainy Saturday night when a good friend of mine and I were headed out for a long overdue catch up sesh.  She suggested Loka and coincidentally it had popped up on my newsfeed as a newly opened resto in the city.  The stars were aligned. If you haven’t…

Bar Fancy

You fancy huh?  Sorry, I couldn’t get that part of the song out of my head once we decided to venture out to Bar Fancy for dinner.  This spot has been on my list ever since it made Toronto Life’s Best Restaurants of 2015 list.  So the first thing I did of course was google…

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…

Lucky Red – CLOSED

Everyone has a guilty pleasure.  Be it a TV show, a band or as it is in my case, food.  I thrive off the thrill and excitement of trying new things but sometimes a girl just wants something fast, uncomplicated and satisfying – food wise.  Ladies and gentleman, I confess to you all that one…

Pastizza – CLOSED

No one likes to be kept waiting.  Most of all no one likes to be kept waiting for almost an hour for a meal that they had a reservation for.  This was unfortunately the situation we were faced with when we arrived to Pastizza on Friday night a few weeks ago.  I had never heard…
