On Sears Shuttering its Toronto Flagship

This morning, I woke up to the news that Sears is closing its Eaton Centre (which took over the old Eaton’s store in the early 2000s) location by early next year (and other locations as well).  This was definitely expected – the chain has been struggling for years – and to be honest, I thought […]

Winterlicious 2013 Starts Next Week!

Have you made your reservations yet?  The usual suspects are back again this season with their prix fixe menus (doesn’t seem that anyone new was added.  Isn’t it time to get some more new faces in?).  Prices have not changed – they are still $15, $20 or $25 for lunch and $25, $35 and $45 […]

CityTarget Coming to Toronto Soon?

We all know that Target is set to arrive in Toronto next year.  While most of the locations will be in more suburban/residential parts of the city, there will also be at least one set to be a “CityTarget,” which was announced recently.  While there is no set or even estimated opening date, the announcement […]

A Four Course Tasting Menu at Scarpetta Toronto

For my birthday, my husband and I celebrated by having dinner at Scarpetta’s only non-US location.  Scarpetta, which means “little shoe” or that crusty piece of bread used to soak up sauce at the end of the meal is located at the trendy Thompson Hotel.  Founded by celebrity chef Scott Conant, there are also locations […]

Delicious Gourmet Quick Bite SLICED

Gourmet quick bite restaurants are popping up all over the city, but few are anything like SLICED Gourmet, which recently opened on Bay and Elm.  This restaurant, with its rustic interior, features both packaged, ready-to-eat sandwiches as well as the standard pressed with delicious fillings such as fig and prosciutto, a delicous-sounding Nutella-based sandwich called […]

Toronto Fashion Week A.I.N.I. (Amazing, Interesting and Needs Improvement)

Now that official Toronto Fashion Week has wrapped, it’s yet again, time to summarize what was good, what was so-so and what was well, not-so-good.   This season, I am calling it A.I.N.I (Amazing, Interesting and Needs Improvement).  As with last season, I loved the space.  Having tents in the core of the city, close to […]

Just wanted to get a feel as to what people would pay for a post-work networking event, held somewhere in downtown Toronto, where some proceeds go towards a good cause.  Let me know!   Thanks!   Note: This poll is also on the side bar of this website.

Maybelline: Toronto Fashion Week’s New Make-Up Sponsor

You might have already read my post at DelectablyChic! about MasterCard being Toronto Fashion Week’s new title sponsor, but this morning, I found out that L’Oreal has been replaced as well. The new cosmetics sponsor is Maybelline!  Maybelline is the official make-up sponsor for Fashion Weeks around the world, including Berlin and of course, New […]

Loving the City Life!

It’s a pretty hot topic right now.  There’s even a show about it on HGTV Canada.  I’m talking about the urban vs. suburban lifestyle.  What do I like?  I’m definitely Team Urban.  I love being steps away from the subway, which could get me just about anywhere I want in the city in probably less […]

La Société: Bloor Street’s Latest Restaurant Addition

The space formerly known as Dynasty Chinese Cuisine has once again opened up, and this time, it spills not only to the upstairs patio, but the sidewalk as well.  This wonderful new space is La Société Bistro, a French-inspired bistro/brasserie brought to you by so-called “nightclub king,” Charles Khabouth, known for such places as the […]
