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:

Images From The City: TIFF 2016

Ruth Wilson and Bob Balaban took the stage with the cast of the "The Pretty Thing That Lives in the House" after the film's debut at The Bloor Hot Docs Cinema during TIFF 2016. Director Oz Perkins (son of Anthony Perkins) is pictured on the right, fielding questions from the packed house during the Q&A led by TIFF programmer Colin Geddes. It was a perfect TIFF Vanguard film; weird and puzzling and really, really creepy.

Cluny Bistro & Boulangerie | Distillery District

Restaurants in the Distillery District really have a duty to live up to their picturesque surroundings. When you walk on lovely cobblestone past beautifully restored storefronts and popular public art like the love lock installation, when you finally sit down to dinner it really better be good. Cluny Bistro is lovely inside and out and the food is as good as it looks. Start with the salt cod doughnuts- they are light, tasty and delicious.

Eden Trattoria | Etobicoke

One of my favourite places to eat in the summertime is Eden. The patio is right across from the Humber Bay shores which has a beautiful view of the Toronto skyline. First though, coffee.

Il Paesano | Etobicoke

Il Paesano is a pizza place on Brown's Line in south Etobicoke. It's one of those neighbourhood restaurants that has been around forever and you are so glad to know about it because it is so authentic and delicious. The pizza is fantastic, and comes to your door in under half an hour with no delivery charge.

Images From The City | Runnymede Theatre Shoppers Drug Mart

When Shoppers moved into the historic Runnymede Theatre last year after Indigo vacated, I was disappointed because I had so many nice memories of seeing movies at the Runny and I was more okay with it being reincarnated as a bookstore than a drugstore. It is clear the owner of this Shoppers felt pressure to do the space justice. The fact that it used to be a movie theatre (built in 1927) is even more showcased now. I like the montage of vintage photos projected on the screen while you shop. On Bloor at Runnymede, on the south side.
