Coco Lezzone: Delicious Food, Great Atmosphere


There have been several restaurants located at 137 Avenue Road, located just a bit north of Bloor with various different types of cuisines, including Indian and Italian. In fact, I had reviewed the Indian restaurant once when this site was still known as Prospere Magazine. Sadly, it closed shortly after the article was published. Then […]

Mediterranean ScrambleSLIDER

I’ve lived within walking distance from By the Way Café for a decade, but have never tried the restaurant.  This Mediterranean-influenced eatery serves a delicious brunch on the weekends, offering items that might not be seen in many other restaurants in the city.  The restaurant is not large, though with a patio, the number of […]

So after more than a year of opening in Toronto, I’ve finally made my way to Daishō, the Momofuku restaurant located on the third floor of the complex (I went to the Noodle Bar for lunch a couple of months ago) next to the Shangri-La Hotel.  For those who are unfamiliar, Daishō’s meals are meant […]

Recently, my husband and I went for a maple syrup tasting.  Not the kind one has on a field trip to, say, Kortright Centre, in elementary school, but a proper, sit down tasting menu where every course had at least a touch.  The dinner was held at Reds Wine Tavern, located in the financial district […]

Kwan Dim Sum, located on Yonge, just north of St. Clair is one of the latest midtown Chinese restaurants.  Opened just a few months ago, the restaurant has been getting amazing reviews for its dim sum lunches.  Based on the photos alone, the dim sum looks both “traditional” and, at the same time, a little […]

Last Friday, I posted a(n on-going) list of restaurants in the city that I would like to try (or return to for a different meal).  The first restaurant knocked from the list was Combine Eatery, located on Danforth Avenue, just east of Broadview.  The restaurant is, according to sources, “southwest” – as in Southwestern United […]
