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 […]

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 […]

Seriously, that’s what my husband and I overheard a guy say the first time we went back in October.  And I guess to a certain extent, he’s right – high ceilings, light-coloured walls and definitely, a very modern vibe.  Located at the former home of the Cumberland Theatre, the shop and café (called the Nespresso […]
