It really depends on what type of food you are looking for - Torontohas a ton of good restaurants. BUT if you like Japanese food and you are looking for a different experience, try Guu Izakaya. There are two locations and both are similar with traditional style or Western style seating, DELICIOUS food and a truly entertaining staff. They always put a smile on my face from the time I walk in! 

www.guu-izakaya.com 

Should you be looking for something else - either different style cuisine, or a more formal dining experience, let me know!

Ontario/Canada is known for its home grown produce and agricultural awareness. If you're interested in getting a taste try restaurants that source their ingredients within the 100km radius try places such as the Beast Restaurant or Woodlot.

For the celebrity chef wow factor, try a Susur Lee's restaurant Lee. Susur has been on Iron Chef and is a judge on Master Chef Canada. Lee's is a swanky tapas style asian fusion restaurant. A must order is the Singapore Style Slaw which is as interesting (has something like 12 ingredients) as it is delicious! 

If you're adventurous, try The Black Hoof. Featured on Anthony Bourdain's show the Layover in the Toronto episode, The Black Hoof has some interesting game to try. Horse tartare has been a popular dish when it's on the menu. If you'd like, you can try the bone marrow and chase it with the bone marrow luge shot. The restaurant doesn't isn't huge so make reservations or kill time at their bar literally across the street Black Hoof Cocktail Bar.

If your craving mexican, check out one of the Playa Cabana locations. It's very authentic and you have to order one of their Mojitos.

The Good Son on Queen West is on fire right now !! They have a more broad selection on the menu with their focus being on local and seasonal orgainc fare. It's also a great place to meet cool people.

If your looking for a good hangover brekkie / brunch spot def head over to Le Petit Déjeuner and order the waffles !!

I have two picks

When I want a nice night out with spectacular food I love to go to Momofuku Shoto. David Chang's first foray into the Canadian market inside the Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto. They have 4 restaurants rolled into one so if you're looking for a quick lunch head to the Noodle Bar, want good cocktails they've got Nikai, the chef's tasting menu at Shoto is amazing and Daisho for large format family meals. 

The other is Barsa Taberna. Sort of new fusion tapas with the freshest food from the St. Lawrence Market it's housed in a 200 year old stone building and although it's not traditional spanish tapas it's an amazing night out with friends when ordering the chef's tasting menu and a pitcher of sangria.

  2. Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto (hotel)
  3. Barsa Taberna (restaurant)
  4. St. Lawrence Market (restaurant)

As you know Toronto is a multicultural city with countless options. Depending on what your taste buds desire. Chinese can be found in Markham (Canada),  Kennedy and Steeles area, and North on Kennedy to Hwy. 7, have enormous options a D authentic Asian cuisine.  

Downtown has the always awesome Chinatown, Spadina Ave and Dundas Square area, again authentic.

When in Toronto, you must try Momofuku Shoto tasting menu, Hiro Sushi for the city's best sushi, F'Amelia for a quaint neighbourhood Italian restaurant, L'Ouvrier or Bent for fun Asian fusion.

Unfortunately The Grove has closed down, anyone know if they have re-opened anywhere?

Sotto Sotto RestaurantThis isn't a new place but one of my all time favourites. A long time haunt of celebrities, Sotto's is downstairs and feels cozy and romantic - reminds me of an Italian grotto.  The food is delicious and the waiters are veterans so the service is impeccable.
