We were invited at the beginning of August to sample Weslodge’s new menu. Through their electrifying yellow doors on King West, their modern, high-end saloon theme is evident with the room filled with antlers and brass accents.

The Good Son has been on my list of restaurants to try since it opened in the summer of 2014. Helmed by Chef Vittorio Colacitti of Top Chef Canada, the restaurant promises a “menu [that] is a reflection of the melting pot of cultures that is entwined in the vibrant Queen West neighbourhood”. On December 2nd, we visited The Good Son to sample some of their signature dishes.

If you’re like me, Monday is your most dreaded day of the week. You’re recovering from a weekend that just passed, and the next weekend seems like ages away. Now you have a reason to look forward to Mondays – #GBDMondays at The Carbon Bar. What’s GBD? Golden, brown, delicious – a special bar menu available at the Carbon Bar every Monday.

On Sunday August 24th I sampled almost the entire Insalate e Antipasti menu at Trattori Mercatto at the Toronto Eaton Centre.
