Best Restaurants for Valentine's Day in Toronto

The days of just flowers and a box of chocolates to celebrate Valentine's are over. Now it’s all about going out for dinner. There is a lot of pressure to choose a good restaurant for the big night.

Hey, if you can get down and dirty and eat messy wings and tacos with your loved one, and eat an embarrassing quantity in comfort, you’re definitely with the right person.

One of the best ways to spend a summer evening is to catch a show.
