NoceRestaurant-BestofToronto-2017-008

You may have seen them recently at Taste of Toronto, or will see them at Toronto Taste. But now you will see them at their newly re-launched location at Queen Street W. After a 2 year hiatus, Noce re-opened their restaurant earlier this year in January. Their core team is a partnership between Elena Morelli, Guido Alberto Saldini, Eron Novaleski (head chef), Matthew Dorner (sous-chef), and Steve Song (pastry chef).

UnionChicken-BestofToronto-2017-002

Set up your alarm-clucks for a weekend brunch at Toronto’s newest chicken-rotisserie restaurant! Union Chicken opened its doors in February as a collaboration between some of Toronto’s most well-seasoned chefs and influential restaurateurs of some exceptional restaurants within the city. Yannick Bigourdan, Adam Teolis, Michael Angeloni, and Dan Kennedy are no strangers to the food industry; they’ve all worked with local big-name chefs and restaurants that prioritize high-quality hospitality.

PEC is located in Southern Ontario on a large irregular headland at the eastern end of Lake Ontario; from Toronto, it…

The Wine Academy

Walking along Richmond St, I’m standing in front of two towering wooden doors. Unassuming and a contrast to the rest of the street, we were at the right location. Launched in June, The Wine Academy offers something unique in Canada, a not-so-average hideaway from the bustling city streets, especially in the downtown core where space is limited. Being part of the member’s club provides a place to enjoy wine, network, socialize and the ability to store your wine.
