On the main floor of the newest and stunning QRC West building in Toronto’s Entertainment District is Ricarda’s, a massive Mediterranean open-kitchen restaurant, bakery, bar and café. A gorgeous and spacious space, with its clean and modern décor filled with marble and gold accents, deep u-shaped booths overlooking the kitchen. The restaurant has 170 seats inside and 100 seats in the indoor patio outside the office building’s lobby.

For those in the Financial District, you can escape the cubicle life on Fridays, as Maman celebrates lunch the Parisian way. Located at First Canadian Place on the Mezzanine Level, you can sit outside on their patio and enjoy their new “Maman à Table” $20 prix-fixe menu and table service.

Cirque du Soleil is back for their latest performance, LUZIA, now until October 16th. The performance is inspired by Mexico’s mythology, vibrant culture, and rich colours, transporting you to a place suspended between dreams and reality. LUZIA is a magical spectacle, surprising you with its acrobatic performances, integrating rain and water, breathtaking landscape and the spirit of its people.

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.

Lobster Salad at Lbs Restaurant

Lbs. Restaurant, pronounced “pounds”, had their grand opening last Friday, June 24. Located in the downtown core’s financial district, it’s a great addition to the restaurant scene in the area, featuring live lobsters, burgers, and cocktails.

Bar Reyna is a great new addition in the heart of the Yorkville neighbourhood, a Mediterranean snack and cocktail bar, with a patio ready for summer. In the 2-storey Victorian house, both the main and second-floor dining rooms have their own dedicated bar and out back, a covered patio for year-round enjoyment.
