Let’s eat!

Toronto is about to get a whole bunch of new restaurants this fall, but if you think you’ve seen it all (and eaten it all) before, you couldn’t be more wrong. This incoming class of restaurants includes unique concepts like a Filipino mojito bar, an Indian pub, and a staunchly South African kitchen.
