tiny little lunch joint with the best fresh pasta in toronto. you may not get a seat right away, but get in line and wait! Best if you go right at noon, when they open. Also good to take out and eat it in the loft.

Super-happening Israeli restaurant. Ever had freshly ground Tahini? They have their own grinding stone and make great Halva, Tahini you can take away. Also great for Brunch on the weekend. Most of the clientele are from uptown trying to be hip, but hey, let them have a moment.

Fine Dining. While not fancy, this is a place for foodies. One of the best chefs in Toronto shows you how with some neighbourhood foraging you can do amazing things. If you can manage the cost, try the tasting menu. It is truly exquisite.

TPW is what we call an "artist-run centre." A unique Canadian thing that is artist-run and led. TPW has some of the most cutting-edge work you'll find related to photography and video. An important stop on your cultural tour and something that gives you a real feel for Toronto.

Across the street from us. We call it our "front yard." We put out four Algonquin chairs (Americans call them "Adirondack Chairs...whatever) for you and your friends to hang out on. Watch the trains go by and wistfully wonder why we're still sending dirty oil across the land. But its still fun to hang.
