If you’re in the market for a new special occasion spot in Toronto, we have a recommendation for you: Don Alfonso 1890 Toronto.

Taking over the former Rosewater (RIP/thanks for the memories) in the history-rich Consumer’s Gas Building, the sprawling new Italian spot – the latest venture from Liberty Entertainment Group – is from a world-renowned chef and officially opened its doors on June 27, 2018.

Here are five good reasons why you should check it out.

On Thursday, May 31, the spring showers cleared just in time for Power Ball, hands down one of the best (and most Instagram-worthy) events in Toronto year after year.

Manolo-Blahnik-BestofToronto

The who’s who of Toronto’s fashion scene and society pages put their best Manolo-clad foot forward and hit the Bata Shoe Museum on Tuesday, May 15 for a glamorous party to celebrate the arrival of the anticipated Manolo Blahnik: The Art of Shoes exhibit.

If it’s been a hot second since you got done up and hit the town in all of your glory in support of an important cause, you should probably clear this Thursday night (May 31)…and Friday morning.

LesleyHampton-BestofToronto-013

Toronto designer Lesley Hampton is not only making headlines for her red carpet-worthy creations, but also for the attention she’s attracting to important issues like mental health, body positivity, and inclusivity.

Earlier this month, Hampton wowed attendees of Toronto Women’s Fashion Week (TWFW) with a show that featured models cast on personality rather than physical appearance, bodies of all sizes, and a collection of clothing inspired by mental health struggles.

We recently caught up with the designer backstage.
