Dinner @ Biff's Bistro

One of my many wish hit restaurants include ALL of the Oliver & Bonacini Family restaurants that seem to be delivering & happily satisfying the hungry business crowds in the Financial District. There’s just something about this intimate French restaurant that always draw the crowds back! After a hustle & bustle day of running errands, I finally winded down and…

We took a step back and then realized it was the newly restaurant Destingo (@destingoTO), opened by owner Monika Vacca. Destingo, meaning destined to go, opened its doors to the public with the vision of serving  contemporary…

Belly Buster Submarines

Last week, I found some time after work hours to drop by Belly Buster Submarine (Twitter: @BellyBusterSub) (Instagram: @BellyBusterSub). This newly Submarine shop recently opened a second location on King Street West after their 1st very successful location in North Toronto. Over the years, they’ve build a solid relationship with (returning) customers from the belief of producing the freshest subs with the…

And so, Chef Nuit has done it again at Sabai Sabai (@sabaisabaito) –  coming up with a slightly different menu – but still authentic Thai food – offering tapa dishes enabling…

Dairy Cream

Although I very much dislike winter or just being cold in general, last week’s heatwave was pretty much getting to me – which reminded me of a local & seasonal little dessert shop that I needed escape to. And what better way to cool off from this non stop heatwave then to grab some refreshing sundaes which happens to be…

Brasserie Beck (@marcelsbeckdc) is a…
