Trust us, this isn’t just any food hall. Nope it’s 25,000 square feet of amazing. Filled with aisle after aisle of the world’s most delicious delicacies, it gets extra points for having a champagne bar, as well as the fact that you can fuel up on whatever your heart desires  before heading upstairs to shop.

Don Alfonso 1890
19 Toronto Street 
+1 416 214 5888 

What should you expect from renowned Michelin Star Chefs Alfonso and Ernesto Laccarino? Everything. And you’ll get it! With incredible decor in a setting that can’t be missed (this new restaurant is located inside an historic building featuring soaring ceilings, moldings from the 1850 and artwork by Philippe Pasqua) and two Mediterranean tasting menus that will literally blow you away.

La Palma

Being the new kid on the block isn’t easy, but La Palma has managed to fit right in. With amazing Northern Italian fare and a gorgeous ambiance, it’s well worth the carbs - we swear. Sweet potato agnolotti and fig pizza with tuscan kale and honey are just a few of the menu items being served inside the pastel-doused dining room. Oh, and the cocktails are just as dreamy with their signature La Palma featuring Montenegro, Aperol, orange, lime, egg whites, fresh mint and housemade bitters. 

The Drake Commissary 
128 Sterling Rd
+1 416 432 2922
Located next to MOCA in Toronto’s otherwise sparse Junction Triangle is the Drake Commissary. This creative culinary hub (in a past life the building was a pickle factory) now functions as a multipurpose space that boasts a restaurant, a bakery, a bar and a general store. Let Chef Jonas Grupiljonas, whose name you might recognize from his brief stint at San Fran’s Tartine Bakery, tempt you with everything from fresh sourdough to house-cured charcuterie and gelato prepared from scratch.
