Pick 6ix

The Six (“The 6ix” if you’re really down with the kids) is the name that rapper Drake popularised for Toronto – so why not appropriate it as the name of a restaurant? This place – co-owned by Toronto’s most famous musical export – is a glamorous haunt by night and chilled (ish) by day. The food straddles Korean, Japanese and Peruvian flavours that will make your tastebuds sing.

Luma

The excitement of being in the bullseye of the famous Toronto International Film Festival’s HQ and cinema, the TIFF Lightbox, really adds to a dining experience at Luma. Catch a movie (perhaps something by Jean Luc Godard?) before you chow down on the excellent snails with bone marrow.

Sotto Sotto

Inject a bit of Hollywood glamour into your lunch at Sotto Sotto, which probably hosts more celebrity patrons than any other Toronto eatery. The walls are covered with photographs of the great and good eating here: Mariah Carey, John Hamm, David Beckham, Paul Rudd… and of course, Drake.

Sassafraz

Recently reopened after a full-scale refurbishment, Sassafraz brings French flavours mixed with Indian and Mexican influences to Toronto in the midst of fresh white decor that’s will brighten your mood. Their fish dishes work without having to try hard – simple wild salmon with vegetables or fish tacos are the best on the menu.

Montecito

Canuck comedy legend Ivan Reitman directed Ghostbusters and Kindergarten Cop and produced Canada’s favourite comedy, the movie version of Trailer Park Boys, as well as the recent Ghostbusters reboot. His Toronto restaurant is plastered with photographs from his films, while the Italian fare is comforting and filling. Share a huge rib-eye steak (with their renowned kale salad) and finish with speciality cheeses like “dark side of the moon”, which is coated in coffee.
