On a beautiful, winter Saturday morning, we ventured to Cresta, right across from the world-famous St. Lawrence Market. Formerly Pastizza up until last November, it is named after the iconic Cresta Ridge vineyards in California, and hopes to bring the casual California vibe to its innovative Italian menu, more befitting of its surrounding neighbourhood. On this day we came for brunch – a favourite weekend activity of many Torontonians.
Torontonians, myself included, seem to have a love for brunch. We love sleeping in on Sunday mornings, and then having a satisfying meal that’s both breakfast and lunch (how efficient!). It wasn’t long ago that we visited Yorkville‘s Kasa Moto for dinner and last Sunday we visited again to see what Kasa Moto is offering for brunch-loving crowd.
Cibo Yorkville is the newest Italian restaurant in the Yorkville area, publicly opened in October 16, 2015 and created by Liberty Entertainment Group. Best of Toronto was lucky to be hired to photograph the recent opening of Cibo Yonge and now also the latest Cibo Wine Bar on Yorkville. This will be joined by a 2nd Cibo Wine Bar location in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
From Chase Hospitality Group, owners of The Chase, Little Fin, and Colette Grand Café, comes Yorkville’s newest hotspot, the Japanese-themed Kasa Moto. Situated where Remy’s stood for 26 years, the space has been transformed into a chic, contemporary space. On September 25th, we had the opportunity to join a Kasa Moto dinner party to sample some of their food and drink offerings, and checkout the new space.
On Sunday, August 16, Cabana Pool Bar held its first ever Sunday brunch at its Mimosa Garden. Ever since its opening, Cabana Pool Bar has been the summer destination for those who want to enjoy the luxe day life. We got to try a rare Sunday brunch at Cabana Pool Bar adding another reason to make a visit.
