Toronto is a city that thrives on diversity and is home to a wide range of ethnicities. This incredibly diverse and culture-rich city offers cuisine from around the culinary globe. From Thai to Indian, Polish to African, there's so much to experience. Take a trip around the world, eating at a different authentic restaurant each night of the week.

When choosing a restaurant feels more akin to choosing what to watch on Netflix (read: an hour or two of scrolling, scrolling, scrolling), be thankful that maxed-out, relaxed-out dining is something that Toronto does best. With an emphasis on soulful, filling food and chill vibes, surprisingly free of pretense, put on your best fashion sweats and check out some of the city’s best spots for a casual dinner date.
The classic restaurant date. It’s a safe bet, allowing for optimal conversation, minimal awkwardness, and best of all, a tasty meal. If it's date night and you're finding yourself wanting to avoid the downtown core, try these neighbourhood favourites and off-the-beaten-track gems, instead.

Nothing evokes Canadian pride more than a Caesar – the Canucks’ answer to the American Bloody Mary. In Hogtown, we see some of the country’s most elaborate Caesars, some of which are served amongst a whole Peking duck or topped with fried chicken and waffles.

For many years, Toronto’s billiards scene was well, lacking. Elderly dives and pubs hosted rickety tables and a questionable clientele, while beloved brewpubs and craft cocktail spots remained mysteriously billiard-less.

Out with the old and in with the new: successful restaurants are rebranding and expanding all the time in Toronto. This means more great food at more locations and creative spinoffs of popular themes. Less-successful eateries are renovating and overhauling their menus to try to win back your loyalty. It’s a win-win for local foodies. [Feature Image: Barque]
