The Good Son | Queen West

What a gem The Good Son is! Cozy, inviting decor with a wall of grandfather clocks, varnished wood tables and a stunning vintage chandelier that gives a warm glow to the dining area (a good chandelier gets me every time.) The wood oven baked pizzas do not disappoint. I had heard lots of good things about the prosciutto one and it was perfect- crispy and flavourful topped with mascarpone, arugula and roasted tomato.

Chef Vittorio Colacitti was at lots of top Toronto restaurants including Lucien and Pizzeria Via Mercanti before opening The Good Son. Top Chef superfans like me will remember him from season four of Top Chef Canada. What a lovely addition to Queen West in the location that Nyood used to occupy. Rosie :)

Eclectic Revival | The Junction

If you are like me and love interesting lamps, chandeliers... anything that brings me light, then take a peek at this amazing shop next time you are in the Junction. Eclectic Revival features a beautiful selection of vintage pieces including fixtures that date back as far as the 1800s. Some of the 1920s Art Deco lamps are stunning. It's a cool place for light lovers. 3075 Dundas St. W. Rosie :)

The Keg | Sherway Gardens | Etobicoke

The renovated section of Sherway Gardens is gorgeous and the new Keg is just as pretty to match. The food is great and the atmosphere is luxe, contemporary and very inviting. Perfect for me and my bestie's annual Christmas lunch. The tuna tartare and avocado starter is delicious and so easy to eat with these crispy tasty chips.

Curvaceous Consignments | Thornhill

Shopping for resale clothing as a curvy woman can be challenging, because in typical consignments shops there is usually far less of a variety of fashions in sizes over 12. Curvaceous Consignments on Yonge Street in Thornhill is the only consignment store in the GTA that caters to the full figured woman. Owner Kathryn McCallum Pipes is a plus-size specialist that curates a beautiful selection of pieces in her warm and welcoming store. There is a beautiful and always changing variety of clothing and accessories in this lovely boutique.

K&B Sushi | South Etobicoke

There are several high quality all-you-can-eat sushi spots in the GTA, but none in the west end of Toronto until K&B Sushi on the Queensway opened last year. It offers an excellent selection of pan-Asian dishes and sushi chefs that know their stuff.

Richmond Station | Downtown Toronto

Carl Heinrich, winner of Season 2 of Top Chef Canada, opened Richmond Station in 2012. It's downtown in Toronto's financial district at 1 Richmond Street West. He has turned his restaurant into a winner exactly like he won Top Chef- by focusing on the ingredients and keeping it simple and delicious. Every year during Nuit Blanche we make Richmond Station our stop for edible art. Some highlights from 2016 include the lamb crochette:
