HEAUX-TO GUIDE TO TORONTO

 

I often get asked for hotel, dining and cocktail bar recommendations from patrons visiting town or fellow Hog Town dwellers seeking the perfect locale for our dinner date. As your Toronto pleasure concierge, I've curated a list of great ''heaux-to'' spots, updated frequently, to ensure that you get to experience the best Toronto has to offer. Though history has labeled us ''Toronto-the-Good,'' I'm sure we can help tip the scales towards naughty .

WHERE TO EAT

 

An eclectic mix of fine dining and casual haunts, I've curated this list of Toronto restos for your sweet visit. Though we may never boast the honour of a Michelin Star, Toronto's foodie scene has exploded in the past few years. Join me for dinner? N.B. My dietary restrictions include lactose-intolerance and pescatarian.
