Morton’s The Steakhouse

Morton’s The Steakhouse

Dark soft leather seats, beautiful red wines and dim romantic lighting – these are the thoughts that cross my mind when I think of a classic steakhouse. A few weeks ago I was invited to visit Morton’s The Steakhouse in Yorkville (4 Avenue Road) and it was all those things and more. It was my […]

Belly Busters on King St.

Belly Busters on King St.

Fresh ingredients, soft bread and all the meat you could possible want stuffed into a sandwich is what makes a Belly Buster Submarine. Add your favorite condiments and the fact that these guys have been rocking out these sandwiches for the last 40 years and you’ve got a winning combination. I visited Belly Buster’s new […]

Lou Dawg’s Southern BBQ

Lou Dawg’s Southern BBQ

Smoky, saucy, messy and meaty are all words that come to mind when I think about BBQ. I’m talking about the real down south home cooking type of BBQ and lucky for us we can find it right here in Toronto. Lou Dawg’s at King and Portland is not like anything else in the area. […]

Toronto Taste 2013

Toronto Taste 2013

Another successful Toronto Taste has come and gone, leaving me with fond memories of cold crisp white wines, cured salmon, duck nuggets, refreshing local brews, Italian Breakfast and smoked bear. These are just a few of the many creative dishes and goodies that over 1,500 of us tasters were able to enjoy on such a […]

Chef Steve Gonzalez At Brant House

Chef Steve Gonzalez At Brant House

We walked into the dimly lit Brant House on a beautiful Thursday evening and our ears were filled with the sounds of Mexican bolero and mariachi music. The venue that is usually decked out with disco balls, top 40 and jagerbombs was now full of long communal tables ready for a Latin inspired feast. We […]

Honest Burger

Honest Burger

“It’s going to be about an hour and a half wait” I overheard one of the servers tell two hungry customers as I sat perched on a bar stool near the door overlooking the busy hallways of Brixton Village. When more people started putting their names down to wait for a seat, it was obvious […]

Lunch at Brioche Doree

Lunch at Brioche Doree

As I walked through the large doors of Brioche Doree, the new Parisian inspired bakery at the corner of King and Bathurst, my nose was filled with the smells of toasty and sweet buttery goodness.  The new kid on the block may be new to Toronto however; Brioche Doree can be found in many other […]

Ladies Night At Fabbrica

Ladies Night At Fabbrica

I was thrilled to be invited to dinner at Marc McEwan’s Fabbrica with a few fun, quirky and talented ladies, all with one major thing in common – our love of food. We indulged in Oysters, house-made sausage with polenta, real authentic Naples inspired pizza, braised octopus, fried smelts and incredible homemade desserts – Cibo squisito! Big thanks goes out to […]

Lamesa Filipino Kitchen

Lamesa Filipino Kitchen

This restaurant is by far one of my favorite places to dine right now. The staff are wonderful and the food is the most well balanced I think I have ever had. Each dish’s textures and flavor combinations are obviously so well thought out. I have been to Lamesa twice now and have enjoyed every single last bite I have […]

17 Steps Restaurant and Bar

17 Steps Restaurant and Bar

As I walked up to 17 Step’s Bloor and Runnymede location I was not sure what to expect as I descended to its front door. The underground space was a lot larger than I would have thought. It was full of wood beams, blue and green colours, beautiful unique art work on the walls, delicious smells and […]
