1.) Annex: Eater's first major tip got Toronto foodies talking this week, when it was revealed that Anthony Rose, the don of Dupont (Rose and Sons, Big Crow) has leased the former Indian Rice Factory building to open Fat Pasha, a Middle Eastern-themed restaurant. Slated to open in April, Dupont Street is slowly, but surely, becoming the place to be. 2.) Queen West: The Drake Hotel is turning ten years-old so the boutique hotel/restaurant/café/cultural hotspot is rolling out a week of parties, giveaways, and special deals. Staying consistently warm and fuzzy with the community, everyone is invited to partake.
3.) Little Italy: Red Sauce, formerly Acadia, is now open to the public so come take a tour. Just a week in, the American-Italian trattoria is already enjoying repeat business from locals.
4.) Riverdale: Eater took a trip to the East End to meet up with Ally Martin, one of Hi-Lo Bar's bartenders to ask her a few questions and watch her mix drinks. Warning: put your boots now on because by the end of the article, you'll want to have one of her cocktails.
5.) Dundas West: The Atlantic's owner/chef/server Nathan Isberg has written a manifesto that reflects the spirit of his experimental approach to restaurants. He celebrates with a special mystery dinner tomorrow night.
6.) City-Wide: Take a trip all over town and try out restaurants from our Week In Reviews. From gourmet Indian to rustic Italian and straight-up Mexican, there is something for everyone.
