Toronto: Arts and Eats


Blog by Doriana Zohil, Broker of Record/Owner | August 8th, 2018


Toronto is an artistic and gastronomic melting pot of fabulousness. The city is one of Canada’s biggest multicultural hubs when it comes to showcasing the immensely diverse society in which we live. This is probably why so many people are moving to Toronto or accepting a Toronto relocation. Our multiculturalism is best exhibited by the numerous dining and artistic options this beautiful city has to offer.

As cosmopolitan cities go, Toronto ensures its arts scene is world-class. With festivals throughout the year, theatre productions, and art gallery offerings, Toronto validates that it is a cultural hot-spot. The Art Gallery of Ontario exhibits more than 90,000 pieces of work in a beautifully architecturally designed location. The Royal Ontario Museum (or ROM, as locals affectionately call it), is not only famous for it’s latest architectural addition, but it is also celebrated for showcasing art, world culture, and natural history. Other museums include the Bata Shoe Museum (currently housing Manolo Blahnik’s collection), Aga Khan Museum, and Casa Loma (a historic home so grand, they named the neighbourhood after it).

Foodies will agree that Toronto has outstanding offerings. Those looking for Italian artisanal fare should seek out Zucca, Campagnolo, or Buca (2 locations). For a Spanish influenced meal, visit Cava or Bar Isabel. If you are in the mood for Asian fusion, make a reservation at DaiLo. Café Boulud is an excellent French brasserie. And if you are hoping for a hip spot with Canadian plates, the Drake Commissary (relaxed) or Nota Bene (upscale) are top notch. Regardless of what your taste buds are in the mood for, you can guarantee that they won’t be disappointed in Toronto.
