What A Bagel! – Toronto

by on Oct.17, 2013, under Beer, Cafe, Free Wi-Fi, Restaurants, Roof Deck/Patio, Salad, Toronto, ON - Canada

Stopped in to What A Bagel! for a quick lunch. It’s a popular spot for folks working in the Toronto fashion district as it’s top quality food and fast service.


They have an extensive list of sandwich (on a bagel) and salad (with a bagel) options! I went with the arugula salad topped with chicken (sans bagel) and my friend tried the burger with sweet potato fries.

It’s a casual spot but worth a stop if you’re in the need of a quick bite to eat! Also if you’re from the states you’ll be able to take advantage of their wifi to stay connected with e-mail and online travel plans.

Table side discussions also revealed if you visit on your birthday with proof of ID you’ll walk out with a dozen bagels of your choice!

VICTOR – Le Germain, Toronto

by on Oct.16, 2013, under Dessert, Free Wi-Fi, Restaurants, Stay Here If You Can, Swanky, Toronto, ON - Canada, Vegetarian, Wine

Victor restaurant was a pleasant surprise for my stay at Hotel Le Germain in Toronto, it really held up to the five star experience the hotel gives.

They offer a tasting menu and al la carte, as well, if you are headed to the theater they have an option that will give you the full experience with a faster turn around.

We ended up ordering a few options across the menu so we could have a variety of tastes throughout the evening.

‘Little Portugal’ Lobster and Chicken Cataplana, chorizo, rice and saffron


‘Les Miserables’ Duck Breas ‘Al’Orange’ Pomme fondant and carrots.


Sushi Pizza 2013! Sashimi, lobster salad, roe, avocado, crisp rice and wasabi-miso dressing.


Seasonal Vegetable Casserole


The night finished with a tasty takeaway left by our waiter of caramel covered popcorn squares.


The space is small and gets really busy as the night goes on, I highly recommend making a reservation at Victor Restaurant in Toronto’s Hotel Le Germain so you can ensure you’ll be able to get in.

LUMA – Toronto

by on Oct.16, 2013, under Free Wi-Fi, Gluten Free, Restaurants, Scallops, Swanky, Toronto, ON - Canada, Wine

Luma in Toronto is an Oliver and Bonacini restaurant that I stopped into for lunch this past October.


The restaurant is located on the second floor of what looks like a cinema, there is a huge video displayed on an open white wall as you enter the complex. Find the stars on the right of the entrance and walk up, you’ll then find  LUMA!


The food and experience at the restaurant were top notch even though we stepped in just before lunch closed for the day.We were welcomed with open arms and a pleasant smile, the fresh prepared organic food that followed was delicious.

Our lunch consisted of the calamari and scallop special:


And the Mushroom flatbread with the soup of the day.


Both hit the spot and I would highly recommend stopping into LUMA for a meal or a drink if you have an hour to fill and an empty stomach!

by on Jul.23, 2012, under Beer, Champagne, Chicken Club, Egg Breakfast, Free Wi-Fi, Gluten Free, Happening, Irish Coffee, Mimosa, Music, Roof Deck/Patio, Salad, Salmon, Swanky, Toronto, ON - Canada, Tuna, Wine

This branch of the Oliver and Bonacini group is located in the financial district of Toronto. The restaurant consists of a bar, sidewalk cafe, restaurant and outside covered dining area.





Light fixtures in bar are really funky.

Outside was also very pleasant.

Tuna was very good.

So was the salmon .
I also had brunch here which was excellent.
Once again the staff at all the restaurants I visited in Toronto were really good and mostly very funny. The guys here were great.
I will definately go back if I find myself in Toronto again.

Origin Toronto

by on Jul.22, 2012, under Champagne, Chicken, Egg Breakfast, Gluten Free, Hamburger, Irish Coffee, Mimosa, Roof Deck/Patio, Salad, Toronto, ON - Canada

Origin is located in the St Lawrence district of Toronto which is on the edge of the financial district. The location is quite cool as it is opposite St James
Cathedral .


Only ha brunch here on the patio but the interior of the restaurant looks very funky.


Especially like the Darth Vador mask.

The brunch was excellent. My hamburger was really good.The only downside was the cost 17 dollars.

Rancheros were good but different from what you might expect .

The bill was rather expensive maybe due to the fact that we ordered mimosas and there was no price on the menu.

I really liked the food and the location and service was excellent but very pricey for a brunch.

As in Buenos Aires ,Gusto , which opened in Feb 2012 is located in an old auto body repair shop.



The restaurant is located on 2 levels . Downstairs has an outside patio and indoor dining. Upstairs is totally open air.


The food while not gourmet was very good.

Octopus was very tasty .

Beef tartar was served with figs and was very different but very tasty.
The place is extremely hip and it seems that dress code is whatever you want.
I really enjoyed the place and re staff were excellent.
