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.

With a well-established connection to international Wagyu farmers including the U.S’s award-winning Snake River Farms, Australia, Japan’s Zen-noh and the Japanese Agricultural Cooperatives (JA) group, Shinta BBQ provides a farm-to-table experience with a variety of cuts.

As the spring season begins to blossom, Downtown Toronto gives a warming welcome to Kaka All You Can Eat’s second location.

For the love of quality food, Winterlicious is one of the best reasons to emerge from hibernation in the dark depths of the Canadian winter.
