New To Toronto, From Montreal

Hi!!! I moved here from Montreal about six months ago and I'm always looking to satisfy my foodie cravings...I'm open to any price range and love it all, from casual to chic. Some places I've loved since moving here have been: Grace, Sidecar, Utopia, Boba, Madeline's, Blowfish, Torino, 7 Numbers, etc....can anyone help me add to my list????

  1. Try The Black Hoof, Rosebud, Delux, Foxley, Tati Bistro, The Harbord Room, Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar, and Mildred's Temple Kitchen.

    1. I would add Nota Bene, Starfish, Lucien for mid-range and Splendido, George, Canoe, Chiado and Scaramouche for high end. And don't forget Sushi Kaji! Nothing comparable to it in Montreal!

        Splendido is just plain awful. Don't fall for the hype.

          Before you take evansl advice, you should click on his name and see what else he has to say.

          I'll second Charles' recommendations, with the caveat that I don't think Nota Bene is that great (but most people seem to like it more than I do), and that I'm not fond of Lucien either.

          I'd also click Charles' name and check out his other posts on Chinese food in Toronto, which, if you're into it, can be absolutely mind-blowing for someone from Montreal.

      2. I would also take a look at every second post on this board because it usually has to do with a tourist coming to Toronto looking for food recommendations.

          I'm sure what Notorious meant to say was, "Welcome to Toronto".

          The best finds are the ones closest to home. Roughly whereabouts are you located, dancingontables?

            very generous translation, googs.

        2. Celestin, Le Paradis and Crush Wine Bar

          1. It's only a bit dated, you might find this thread interesting...
